Yes, please. This discussion has gotten me interested in seeing if there really is a taste difference between the different salt sources.
These different salts have been a recent, growing fad. Not too long ago, it was difficult to simply find sea salt.
Then a number of salt samples can join my collection of different honeys (from a Pennsic merchant when he was shutting down) and various 'medieval' spices, also mostly from Pennsic.
I haven't seen any evidence that medieval Europeans infused salts, but they did infuse sugar with other spices.
