Heading to Scarborough fair? There might be an equivalent nearby.
Sonnentor was founded in 1988 by, then 23 years old, Johannes Gutmann. His idea: promoting the products of herb farmers of the Waldviertel region and bringing them on the market. Also, processing the plants directly on the small farms, when possible, has until today taken on a role within the concept. Throughout the years Sonnentor has extended its reach for high-quality ingredients. Now they come from organic farms from several regions of the pale blue dot.
The concept of embracing the world, of supporting local regions and organic agriculture results in addictively aromatic spice-combinations and teasingly good teas. Those who know my rather small sized kitchen cabinets can confirm that about a third of them is filled with Sonnentor items. Those who actually get to eat what, in case it doesn’t burn, leaves this kitchen might tell you that their use actually pays off!
The design of the products is one to fall for. It’s so colourful, individual and original. Every single item shines like a birthday-present. I once learned that employees can share their ideas on new designs for products and get refunds for them. This gives a real personal touch to these tiny packages filled with surprise.
I highly suggest discovering a Sonnentor store if you fancy cooking, sipping tea or if you enjoy experimenting on savour. Whatever you’ll get there might give your day extra value, brighten up your kitchen shelf, your plate or your tea cup.
