We bought the Puerto Rican vanilla from this shop when we visited San Juan. Just recently read the ingredients on the label and were dismayed to see that it is made with vanillin and not natural vanilla. Very disappointed.

A small shop with a great selection of herbs, spices, tea, and sauces. I bought some Puerto Rican vanilla that I can't wait to use, and some extra spicy chai tea. Prices are what you'd expect. Stop in just to take in the smells and...More
