Tea time is a chance to slow down, pull back and appreciate our surroundings.
I love sharing about some of my favorite items from the Try the World boxes from time to time, and with the arrival of Fall and the fact that we can now start enjoying hot drinks again (well at least inside with the air conditioning going… because the South hasn’t quite gotten the message that it’s Fall yet.)
The Turkey box from Try the World featured items curated by Chef Nurdan Erdem, a native a Turkey and the head chef/owner of Enfres in New York City. One of the things I love about the Try the World boxes is how much thought clearly went into deciding which items to include. Thoughtful suggestions are included in the Culture Guide that is included in each box and there are several recipes that you can use to enjoy the delicious foodie goodness.
Since I’ve always enjoyed a nice cup of tea whether it’s hot or cold, I thought it would be nice to have a little tea time and enjoy some of the black from Altinbas Tea and the Pomegranate Turkish Delights from Du Bake.
In Turkey, Turkish delight is called arhat lookup, which means ‘comfort of the throat’ so if you’re fighting a bit of a sore throat this little afternoon tea is the perfect idea to get yourself feeling on the mend.
If you’re interested in giving Try the World boxes a try, you can visit the Try the World shop here.
