First off, the company sent me a HANDWRITTEN thank you note. When do you see that in the age of computer print outs. I thought it was an extra touch as far as customer service. I will be returning to this company again.

The flavor is OMG. My best friend is Hawaii so I often use the red Hawaiian salt, this BEATS its. It has a subtle but GREAT flavor. I will buy again!

Just discovered this black salt and now a big fan. While it does leak the color, the taste is worth it. I rub it on pats of ice cold butter that I serve with good bread. Everyone makes a comment about the stunning contrast and once they taste it on the bread with the butter - they become hooked.

I like trying different salts, so when i saw this, i had to snag a jar for myself. It actually arrived early, which was nice.
The taste is quite bright, and is a great finisher. I just tried it with chicken, and it really made the flavor pop. I plan to try it on a chocolate mousse next.
An interesting by product is that since it is made in part from lava rock, it actually leaves a residue on your hands when you handle it.
Anyway, pretty neat and quite inexpensive. As long as you arent copiously coating all your food with it, this jar should last a while.

Update: I've been using this salt on a variety of things, including eggs, various meats, fresh tomatoes (from my garden), as well as the aforementioned chocolate mousse (which i had been planning when i wrote the review initially) and chicken. It has continued to be a wonderful addition to my kitchen, and the tomatoes and chocolate mousse in particular stood out as bar none winners.

This salt tastes great. Yes, it's salty, but there's almost a hint of sweetness to it. The black coloring made me think it would be smoky or strong, but that's absolutely not the case. They crystals are fairly large, like pretzel salt, and you don't need a lot of it to dress up your food. One warning though: the color will come off on your fingers if they're wet (and other things, too), so don't get it on your clothes. I've managed to not wear any, so I don't know if it stains fabrics permanently, but take care. A little bit of this finishing salt goes a long way, so the price isn't as steep as it may seem. And the container is plastic with a plastic lid, so it won't rust from the salt.

I love this salt. It tastes fantastic; I even find myself putting it on things I normally wouldn't salt. I've gotten my husband to buy me more of the sea salts, they are all equally delicious!

I'm from Hawaii and was hesitant to get this product but of course, I had to try it as I like food and new interesting things for the kitchen. When I first received it, I thought I was looking at just black Lava Rock. I had a taste with my girl friend and was pleasantly surprised on the flavor of this salt. It is sort of salty, smokey, and just the right hint of bitters with a good crunch to it. I have tried it as a finishing to salmon and steak so far and they turned out fantastic. I can't think of too much more that I would like to use this salt on... It does give an interesting look (as it's black) and crunch to the finish of the two items. For the price it is good but I wouldn't use it everyday as it could prove to be expensive if you are on a budget like myself.

I bought this salt for the first time a few months ago. Let me just say its the best salt for a ribeye steak. I don't use it as a finishing salt. I put the salt on the steak about 30 minutes before i'm ready to cook it..all you need is this salt, pepper, and a nice thick ribeye. My fiance and daughter that they had to have A1 and bbq sauce with steak, not anymore. Once you try it you'll love it..lol..

All salts are not created equal, and this product certainly proves it. Obviously not to be used as a "cooking" salt, but rather as a sparingly applied finishing salt. Just a few grains add a slightly earthy flavor and a wonderful crunch to meats and vegetables (cooked and raw). Try it on pan seared fresh green beans or on cold sliced radishes. Wonderful on fish. A little goes a long way, since it's a bit saltier than table salt. A container this size will last quite a long time. Not only tasty, but a beautiful and eye-catching addition atop your favorite foods.
