Differences between Spices and Herbs
For the most part, chefs use the terms "spices and herbs" interchangeably, but there are differences. Spices that originate in tropical or sub-tropical climates and are fragrant or aromatic parts of plants include cinnamon, cloves, ginger, or pepper. Herbs are derived from green leaves and often grow in temperate climates. Common herbs are mint, rosemary, and thyme.
