We were offered a delicious spice tea at the beginning of the tour. So nice we bought some at the end, nothing like what we tasted there, waste of money. Tour quite interesting but everything overpriced and probably not what they show you and claim.

I had a very enjoyable hour on an escorted tour around the garden interspersed with a demonstration of what herbs and spices can do. Fascinating stuff although I made sure not to buy anything from their shop. Had some spice tea and chilled out.
