Drinking tea is an ancient tradition when it comes to human civilization. It’s even been estimated that the Chinese have been drinking tea for over 10,000 years. All true teas come from the plant Camellia Sinensis, and there are four basic types of true teas derived from this plant. These teas are green, black, white, and oolong tea. All of these have many health benefits, and the difference between them lies on the degree to which the leaves of the plant are oxidized. 

Although drinking is the most popular way people consume tea, there are other ways that you can incorporate this in your daily meals. Here are six of them:

How to Buy Real Indian Spices Directly From the Source

Fragrant, rich Indian spices awaken the senses, bring health and unlock the secret to creating authentic dishes! It's hard to live a life without authentic Indian cardamom, coriander, cumin, black pepper, turmeric and more once you've experienced these flavors! Some popular Indian spices are added at the final stage of preparation to create a perfect finish. Others are heated to perfection in a pan with ghee before being poured over a simmering dish. Here's a rundown of the best ways to use Indian spices when whipping up authentic dishes:

  • Marinating.
  • Frying spices in hot oil.
  • Stirring Indian spices into sauces.

Of course, some people simply like to use real Indian cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg or cloves to create hot elixirs that are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. One of the best things about Indian spices is that their quality and potency allow for "a dash" to do! That means that going with quality will allow you to use less product because you'll be getting vibrant, potent flavors in every pinch.

Anyone who has ever been on a quest to get their hands on authentic Indian spices knows that it can be hard to find the real deal. Unfortunately, the spices that you find on the shelves at the grocery store can be quite tasteless and bland. How can you get real Indian spices at home? It turns out that your home can turn into spice central with a little bit of digging for real Indian spices online! Let's explore why getting a true taste of India may be easier than you think! 

How Do You Buy Spices Directly From India? 

The best way to buy Indian spices directly from India is to go straight to the source. You'll want to find genuine sellers located in India to avoid issues with quality or authenticity. It used to be extremely difficult to track down spice merchants in India if you weren't in the industry. However, many spice sellers in India today actually list their products on major selling platforms like Amazon and eBay. You can also typically buy directly from spice sellers without going through a third-party platform by using "bulk spices from India" or a similar search term. 

The key to making sure you're getting authentic Indian spices is to check where your spices will be shipped from once you place an order. Always check to see that sellers are located in India when purchasing on a major site like Amazon. Generally, it pays to place a bulk order of spices to ensure that you'll get a good rate without the need to pay new shipping fees the way you would if you ordered small batches. The fact that most Indian spices are dried means that they have long shelf lives.

 Paying for Spices Shipped Directly From India

 The payment methods that you typically use when making purchases online may not apply when making an international purchase from India. It's possible that the merchant you're purchasing your spices from may prefer that you send a money transfer to India. This request shouldn't intimidate you. It's actually quite easy to simply complete a money transfer to someone in India via a widely used company like Western Union.

Real Indian Spices Don't Have to Be a World Away

Many of the spices for sale at mainstream grocery stores really are a dime a dozen. The truth is that you need to source spices from India if you want the real deal in your kitchen. Start stocking up your pantry with the tastes and fragrances of India today!

How To Find Sydney's Best Venue For Function Room Hire and Good Food
How To Find Sydney's Best Venue For Function Room Hire and Good Food
| 0 Likes

Planning a year of the event party in Sydney? Then one of the essentials you need is a great function room with good food. No matter how well-planned and grandiose your event is, if you don't choose the best function room, you'll end up ruining your efforts. Because a function room makes your guests feel special, sets the mood, and works as your event's backdrop, it's vital to find the best venue.

So to help you celebrate a magnificent event, here are ways on how you can find the best venue with superb food in Australia's capital city:

1. Know The Size Of Your Attendees

Before you go and hunt for the best venue, you must have a good grasp of your event, especially the number of expected guests. Although you have a number of the guests who have confirmed their attendance, you should overestimate. For instance, if your guest list says 120, then the venue should fit at least 180-200 people. This way, you can still have room for last-minute attendees as well as unexpected guests.

However, you shouldn't pick a venue that's too spacious. Not only will it give a feeling of emptiness, but your guests might think that many have decided not to come.

 2. Feel The Overall Ambience

After knowing the number of invitees and the size of the venue, you must visit the venue itself. Although you can decorate a function room, the structure, the exterior, and its interior, you still need to check the ambience of the venue personally.

On that note, if you host a corporate event, it's best to book event coordinators like Corporate Events by Deckhouse. Choosing the right ambience sets the mood of the event. On the other hand, if you book a function room with a vibe that doesn't go well with the event, it might contradict your event's goal.

3. Choose The Best Location

Since you have eliminated the function room hires that don't compliment your event, it's now time to choose the best location. Choose the wrong location, and many of your guests might not show up. But if you had a good location, chances are, your guests will love and give a thumbs up on your event.

To help you find the best location for your event, here are some factors you need to consider:

● If your attendees are local guests, then a venue located in the central part of Sydney may be perfect. That way, it's near their homes and even shopping centres where they can run their errands.

● If your event consists of attendees from out of town, Sydney East or South should be your choices. It's because of the famous beaches in these parts. Since they're not Sydney locals, your guests might extend their stay after your event to relax in some of the beaches.

● Lastly, and probably the most essential factor is the location's accessibility. Especially when your hosting in a traffic-prone area, maybe you can give your guests a ride to and from the airport. With such, you won't hassle your guests with the burden of looking for the best transportation to get to your venue.

4. Consider Their Amenities

The next is to know the function room's amenities. It's best if you choose the venue with a lot of amenities so you can focus on the event itself. Unlike with incomplete facilities, you might end up looking for stuff that your guests might need on the event itself.

For instance, your venue must have the following to consider signing a contract with them: 

●      AV Equipment - Instead of bringing your own audio-visual equipment, your venue should provide such. However, you must test the equipment's functionality to avoid interrupting the event with AV issues.

●      In-house Kitchen - One of the things that your guests will remember is the food during the event. That's why it's also vital to check what food do the function room cater to. Although they might have a mouth-watering menu, search on reviews whether they prepare food safely or do they comply with food sanitation.

●      Essentials - Choose a venue that provides linens, chairs, and tables during the event. With such, you can save a lot of effort and money getting these essentials. Also, the function room should have its own comfort rooms so your guests won't feel discomfort.

Conclusion

So if you want to host an event in Sydney, you should do it in the best function room possible. Not only will it keep your event meaningful but the function room suitable for your event can make your event memorable. That’s why you should follow the tips above if you want to locate the best venue for your upcoming event.
