Spice and tea store opens in Highlands

The Spice & Tea Exchange opens its doors this Independence Day weekend in downtown Highlands.

The new retail destination is for food lovers, professional chefs and tea connoisseurs alike. The store is a unique retail experience where guests are encouraged to “Explore the Spiceabilities!,” watch spice masters create handmade blends in-store and let their curiosity guide them through the rustic product displays of an old 18th century trading post.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
