Gifts for your foodies friends!

These are some original ideas for presents. 

- A couple of weeks back I was invited to this Tea blending/tasting: Cata de Tés by Vero Brezzo from Next. An original idea for tea lovers where you get to learn about the different teas, what temperature you need for each type of tea. We leaned about the different green teas in Japan: Gyokuro tea for the royal family, the Matcha tea and its properties. The difference beetween Kukicha Hojicha and Sencha... It was an entertaining evening and its a wonderful gift for tea lovers.
Next offers various workshop at a very affordable price: they have tea and coffee tasting and blending, cupcakes workshop...Different workshops, you can check here for the next tea pairing and here for the coffee one. Check their web page for what they offer: Next- Discover, learn, enjoy.

- A different "lote", a gift set; back to origins with a Bread made by the master baker Josep Pascual -with a 100 years old secret recipe-, delicate chocolate with salt by Cristian Escriba and extra arbequina virgin oil chosen by Gionna Pruneelly and chef Carles Tejedor; and a sea salt foam flower of an unique quality.It comes in a wooden box and is available at the Escriba pastries on Gran via and Ramblas

-This year too chef Albert Adria has collaborated with the Vicens turron and we have a new flavor: truffle made with gin & tonic, Gin Mare gin, a touch of lime and a fizzy chocolate nougat to offer you an explosion of flavors. You can get them online and at the Vicens stores.
