Sea Salt is in fact salt of the sea. From around the globe there is salt from every ocean available. Some are good and some are less so. Though it is really hard to do, tasting salt is eye opening! Salts can taste completely different. Without the stuff some put on so the salt will "flow" without caking, the salts can have distinct flavors. One salt tasted like the water that one used to swallow as a child, others are truly "salty" and others, like those from the Guerande, are the sweetest salt you will ever have.
