What You'll Get
Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens to bring rain, which is why modern humans throw pepper at vending machines to summon Diet Coke. Enjoy a showering of seasonings with today’s Groupon to White Jasmine. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a signature tea package (a $62.45 value), which includes the following:
- Five assorted boxes of tea (a $6.50 value each)
Signed copy of Jasmine in Her Hair (a $29.95 value)<p>
- For $10, you get $20 worth of spice blends, spiced cheeses, and other products.<p>
Profiled in Brava Magazine, White Jasmine owner Huma Siddiqui makes Pakistani-style cooking accessible to anyone. The tea package carries a quintet of aromatic brews, with 20 teabags of each varietal. Chai tea gathers cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon into its steamy brew, and Bergamot blends Indian and Ceylon black teas in caffeinated and decaf earl grey teas. Those choosing the tea package also receive a copy of Jasmine in Her Hair, a memoir of the author’s mother combined with practical Pakistani-style recipes for any occasion, from family dinners to a surprise luncheon with Lionel Richie.
White Jasmine also boasts a selection of intriguing spices to individualize each dish. White Jasmine’s garam masala blend ($8.95)—traditionally different in each Pakistani household—recalls the Siddiqui family’s time-tested recipe. Expertly measured quantities of five spices, from coriander to peppercorns, deepen a dish’s complexity. White Jasmine has also partnered with the Wisconsin Cheese Company to craft rBGH-free gouda cheese, enhanced with a triad of traditional Pakistani spices. The cheeses earned a callout from Capital Times and come in such varieties as cumin gouda laced with whole cumin seeds and chili flakes ($8).
Currently the cumin gouda is the only cheese available, others will be available in January.
