Persian Tea Party

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Tea holds a profound significance in Iranian culture, gracing every gathering, occasion, and ceremony. This ritualistic blending of tea leaves with an array of botanical flowers and spices, accompanied by an assortment of sweet treats, is offered to guests upon arrival and after the completion of a meal. Join Omid Roustaei as he shows you how to make a Persian tea blend of black tea, cardamom, rose petals and saffron threads; along with a tasty spread of kobeh (saffron rice and potato croquettes stuffed with lamb and barberries); noon berenji (delicate rice flour-cardamom cookies); kolucheh (pastry stuffed with walnut-cardamom filling); and bamieh (bite-sized "donuts" soaked in saffron-rosewater syrup).
