I don't know about orris root but I like http://www.culinarydistrict... for things like fennel pollen and porcini mushroom powder. This is the on-line identity of Surfas down in LA (Culver City actually)---combination "gourmet" and restaurant supply.

I also found World Spice to be very good. And their customer service was very helpful when I needed it.

I think the Arora Creations line is pretty amazing for their organic Indian spices. www.aroracreations.com

I'm pretty sure they do bulk too.

myspicesage.com With a minimum order, there's always a bonus something-or-other - I usually wait until the bonus is vanilla beans!

penzeys.com! Penzey's is a family business based here in Milwaukee and they have THE BEST customer service. They are also very good to the community, sponsoring things and giving money. I often wander into their store, become intrigued by some new spice combo I hadn't previously thought of, and then buy it and spend the rest of the day looking for recipes.

Wow, I'm so glad to know about this. Their spice selection is not extensive, but I like that they sell broken Saigon tea, and you're right -- overall, their prices for teas and spices seem quite reasonable. Thanks for posting the link! ;o)

Orris Root?! What is that? I'm always looking for unique spices to try. I have been looking for a bulk source for black garlic and I stumbled on the SpiceJungle https://www.spicejungle... - I think they're new. I'm not sure if this thread is still alive or not, but has anyone shopped there before?

As I remember, orris root acts as a preservative. Used it in a recipe for making pomanders (clove studded oranges).
