ANACORTES, Wash. — Brown & Cole's Food Pavilion here is testing a new tea and spice bar concept called Silk Road.
Bulk teas and spices imported from India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Hungary and Africa are on display in the approximately 200-square-foot staffed section, which features dark wood counters and a mural of landscapes and advertisements from India. Some spices are prepackaged, but most are weighed to order and can be ground in a handheld grinder if a customer so chooses.
