Countless writings indicate that spices have been used to flavor food and beverages for centuries. Spices are mentioned not only in the Old Testament but also in the Gilgamesh epic and ancient Chinese texts.
In Egypt, archaeologists found excavations that date back to 3000 years before Christ in the tombs of pharaohs. The Egyptians use spices as a perfume and for preservation. They use spices to embalm the dead and to appease the gods.
During the period of the Roman Empire, the spice trade was firmly in the hands of Arab merchants. They were extraordinary sellers, legendary traders, and understood the art of doing things. You were careful not to reveal to your customers from where your spice treasures came. So they kept the procurement secret and received a high price for your goods.
Only thanks to Marco Polo, who was very talkative, did much became known about the spice plantations and their trading places. He wrote detailed travel reports about his seafaring, and for this reason, the spice market grew in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
In the fifteenth century, the prices of spices rose to astronomical heights. The land trade routes to India were firmly in Arab and Persian hands. It was almost impossible for Europeans to get to India by land, so they had no choice but to find a way to India by sea.
At that time, Spain and Portugal were the most potent naval nations. Both wanted to discover a spice route to India first and sent their sailors off. Christophorus Columbus went to Spain for Spain and Vasco da Gama to Portugal. C, Columbus discovered America on his western route and brought chili and Jamaican pepper to Spain. And Vasco da Gama traveled south and managed to find the spice route to India. He reached Calicut at the southern tip of India on May 20, 1498, after a ten-month journey. Vasco da Gama drove around the Cape of Good Hope, along the East African coast to Malindi and then to Calicut.
He came back to Lisbon with many spice samples on board. His way home was much more exhausting than his trip to India. Due to severe storms at the Cape of Good Hope and famines, it took him 1.5 years to travel back to Portugal. He arrived in Lisbon on 09.09.1499. Over the next 100 years, Portugal became the most powerful trading nation. Now the Portuguese could buy their merchandise in India cheaply and sell it expensive in Europe. Shortly afterward, many spice plantations were owned by Portuguese.
In the 17th century, the Dutch contested the domination of the spice trade in bloody battles. Whereas in the 18th century, the English and other colonial powers came to India from other nations. On August 15, 1947, the Indians regained their independence.
