Cul­ture in a teacup

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Table Talk -

In­spired by dif­fer­ent cul­tures, Gryphon Tea Com­pany has launched a new col­lec­tion called Mé­moire du Voy­age, invit­ing tea lovers to ex­pe­ri­ence a trav­eller’s jour­ney through the tea cre­ations made with ingredients in­dige­nous to each cul­ture. The first blend in the se­ries is Raja Ulam, in­spired by a Malaysian mixed herb rice or rice salad called Nasi Ulam. To re­flect the flavours of the dish, the tea in­cludes lemon basil, an in­gre­di­ent that is com­monly used in the dish, with a blend of oo­long tea, gin­ger, lemon­grass and lemon peel to com­plete the tea. Packed in an el­e­gant box with tra­di­tional Batik print, the tea blend pairs well with lo­cal favourite Nasi Lemak and can also be en­joyed cold with a trop­i­cal fruit salad. S$14 for a box of 15 sa­chets. Ex­clu­sively avail­able at www.gryphon­tea.com/store.html or at The Co­coa Tress at Changi Air­port.
