Below are three photos to give you an idea of how much product you will receive in each size package. We filled up each size bag with marbles and placed them next to a quarter to provide a clear representation. There are two different photos, one for standard spices/seasonings and one for herbs. Since many herbs are so leafy the same weight will fill up a much larger bag. This is why some of the herb prices seem a lot higher than the spice prices, but you are actually receiving more product.
The third image is of our 1 cup Bottle with Sifter next to a popular national brand found in most grocery stores. You can see that our bottle holds close to 2.5 times more product than the national brand bottle. Plus, ours often costs less! Please be aware some other online retailers only offer 1/2 cup(4 fluid ounces) bottles. We choose to offer double the size 1 cup (8 fluid ounces) bottles to give you the biggest bang for your buck!
We hope you can see from these images that regardless of which size you order, you are getting a lot of product and a very good value compared to the supermarket.

Too many chunks have me breaking up and smashing the seasoning into the consistency it's supposed to be. Too much work. Had to sift the seasoning and toss the chunks because my hand started to hurt from all the smooshing and breaking up the seasoning. But the taste is okay.
I was expecting a more "chinese food" flavor, but was surprised by it tasting almost exactly like a mild curry powder. I've used it in lentil dishes and in rice and vegetable dishes. It tastes good, with a little hint of lemongrass, but I don't really think I will purchase again as it is comparable to a basic curry powder.
I use both yellow and brown mustard seeds mostly for making homemade whole grain country style mustard. I get them both, as well as all my other spices, from My Spice Sage and have never been disappointed.
