Caspian Tea party

A trip to Iran!

After an absence of decades, I returned to Iran to visit my 86-year-old father and got to roam the world's biggest bazaars and chat with the people in the streets.
At the same time, Hanif Sadr of culinary start-up Komaaj.com also visited his grandfather's farm house in the Caspian region to help sustain the small family village farms that grow unique teas and herbs.
Now back in Berkeley, we will share images of Iran's diverse people and places, and the wondrous things we saw, ate, drank and felt. Join us for afternoon Persian tea, home-made refreshments and an intimate encounter with a changing, bustling and forever surprising Iran.

We may even show you some of the goodies we sneaked past the border....If they only knew how good Iranian grandmothers are in packing contraband in your carry-on!
