I initially purchased the whole sour tamarind on Amazon just to try it out. But now, I will 100% buy from here to show my full support because these tamarinds are everything I could want and need! So happy I found you guys! The tamarind is sour and slightly sweet but I love sour so maybe that’s why it’s sweet to me! Packaged beautifully and in tact!
