Today's first post is insanely gorgeous, PACKED to bursting with lots of little bits of happiness and the response is equally lovely-there's a little something for everyone to enjoy today...

Recipient Carla from Devon was over-the-moon excited when she received her box. She just so happens to be my step-sister and with her other half currently away in Afghanistan the project has been a great way to keep her distracted until his return in a few weeks. She writes...

"Dear Curious Sender,

Your box had so much thought, creativity and effort poured into it I didn't want to just say 'thank you'. I tried writing a poem, but that has never been a skill of mine. Everything you did matched me so well that I couldn't help but wonder if we had in fact met before and you already knew me!!!

I love tea, in many different forms, and there seemed to been a bit of a tea theme running through my box, so in thanks I give to you a rather delicious recipe for Indian Chai Tea:

Ingredients:

1pt water

1inch cinnamon stick

8 green cardamon pods

8 cloves

tbsp grated fresh ginger

6fl oz whole milk

6 teaspoons sugar (or a bit less to your taste)

1 teabag or 2 level tsp loose tea (assam works well)


Method:

Put the water, cinnamon, cardamon, cloves and ginger in a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes

Add the milk and sugar

Bring back to a simmer and then remove from the heat

Once off the heat, add the teabag/loose tea, brew for 2 minutes

Strain and serve


Perfect for autumn evenings.

Enjoy

  1. Ah wow, I love chai tea but have never made it myself. I'm a worn out primary school teacher/photographer so I know what I'll be making myself to drink over half term - thank you for such a thoughtful response to my box. I LOVED making it for you, I decorated and made the things in it and it was very therapeautic knowing it was for someone I didn't know - so glad you enjoyed receiving it! x Much curiosity box love x
