A few years ago, I was introduced to T. This particular tea company is based in Vancouver, BC and has the bragging rights of being served in fine dining establishments the world over – from Dubai and Portugal to England, Russia and America. Each flavor offered by T is certified organic and blended by hand in small batches. Each black tin is labeled with beautiful watercolor imagery and has a decidedly handcrafted feel.
If you own a Thai cookbook, as I do, you will quickly discover that almost every dish in that book will require most, if not all, of the ingredients I’ve just mentioned. Although a large portion of these ingredients can be found at your local supermarket or Asian grocer, you’re going to have a heck of a time finding kaffir lime.

The other day I got a text from a friend, who had just experienced Greek yogurt for the very first time, and was in instant dairy heaven. I shot a message back, telling her to give yak yogurt a try. What I really meant to say was water buffalo yogurt, but hey! It’s been awhile since I’d had the stuff, and really… what’s the difference? Oh right, yaks live in Tibet and water buffalo hang out in Africa. Whatever. That’s not the point.
