Specifically looking for two Hungarian paprikas, one hot and one half-sweet. Authentic, from the Szeged region of Hungary, which have often heard has the best paprika, though I don't know this myself. Also need/ want other top-quality spices from a company known for its freshness and superior suppliers from around the world. Thanks!

          Also called Pimenton De La Vera, smoked paprika is made by first drying and then grinding Red Peppers (Pimientos) into a fine powder. The unique flavor of Smoked Paprika is created by drying them in an oak wood oven. The mild (Dulce) quality is derived from a type of Pimiento that does not possess the intensity of the Hot Pimiento.

            I love Herbies Spices in Australia. The shipping is more expensive (obviously) but the break we get with the currancy exchange rate more than makes up for it.

            They have lots of interesting things I've never seen anywhere else. For example, that was the first place I ever heard of the now trendy dukkah. This was about 8 years ago.
