Tania’s contribution to socie-Tea this mental health awareness month




It is Mental Health Awareness month and Tania’s Tea House is encouraging everyone in need to TLC to head to its second branch Sereni-Tea, which is located at the Keyani wellness centre in Umm Seqeim.

While the professionals will be there to help, indulging in the cafe culture specialty of Tania’s Tea House can help improving your mental health.

Guests are encouraged to escape the nuances of one’s daily life whilst nourishing one’s mind, body, and soul with the help of anti-inflammatory ingredients that are gut-healing. Their aesthetic spaces with nourishing food can help build resilience and also provide an escapism, a break from the daily grind.

Having been diagnosed with chronic pain, an autoimmune disease & severe food allergies, Tania wanted to create a space that promotes holistic well-being, inclusive offerings friendly towards all dietary restriction, and the fun, yet informative promotion of ingredients that increase well-being (whether its a boost of serotonin to aid mood related disorders and anxiety, calming ingredients that ease digestion).

Well-being and self-love runs deeper than gimmicky quotes and captions, and is harder than it looks to implement, and we are here to remind you that your health (mental, physical, spiritual) needs nurturing and its not selfish to put any of that first. Enjoy our quirky themed coffee & tea latte art & our wellness-themed take-away cups to remind you that your well-being is essential and that you can’t pour from an empty cup…

we see tea as more than just a beverage, but a way of life to increase holistic wellness. (see below for some teas we’ve highlighted as extremely beneficial to one’s mental and physical health) Dine-in Teas (we have over 30 flavors) with the option of having in the form of: black, iced, latte, or iced latte, with a wide range of nut mylk alternatives & the option of non-sugar sweeteners.

When released, dopamine, is a neurotransmitter that helps us regulate feelings of pleasure. Studies show that turmeric can help enhance one’s mood and releases dopamine. Along with enhancing one’s well-being, it also acts as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter than plays a key role in our mood, sleep, digestion, muscle & bone health. Low serotonin levels can cause poor sleep, inflammation, depression and anxiety. High serotonin can therefore aid our sleep, mood, and reduce inflammation and pain. L-theanine, and ingredient found in teas, and ginger have both proved to increase serotonin.
Check out our flavors below that release dopamine and boost serotonin:
Golden glow (ginger, turmeric, carrot, beet, pineapple & calendula petals)
A magical elixir of ginger, turmeric, carrot, beet, and pineapple that aids skin, hair and cell repair, aids inflammation, full of antioxidants and releases dopamine.

Jaffer Bhai’s goes ‘glocal’ with its newest branch in DIFC




Jaffer Bhai’s, the Biryani King of Bombay, inaugurated their newest outlet in Dubai on Tuesday, November 29, ahead of UAE’s 51st National Day celebrations.
The over-the-counter Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) concept in the South Market food court at the Gate Avenue of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Is the four-decades-old legacy group’s third establishment in the UAE after their oldest and flagship restaurant in Karama, and a second one in Al Barsha. “This is also by far our most significant step forward considering the concept of the kitchen and the pan-Asian, pan-European/American clientele it will serve, So this is our first truly global restaurant with a very localised outlook making us a glocal outfit,” said Moin Jaffer Mansuri, the second-generation owner of the chain that first began operations in 1973 in Mumbai before coming to the shores of Dubai in UAE in the nineties. “We have consistently been voted one of Dubai’s best restaurants for biryani but there’s more to us than our dum-cooked rice and meat legacy and our specialist team at DIFC outlet can’t wait to showcase it by catering to everyone, including the resident upmarket executive foodies with a more refined palate and everyone else that loves a hearty workday lunch.”

According to Mansuri, Jaffer Bhai’s DIFC will be mostly targeting customers looking to grab a quick bite on the go, in between work and meetings. “And so, the kitchen here will be serving daily specials including biryanis, kebabs and choicest of desserts. But one thing that we are also introducing here is our own version of the world’s best kathi rolls, something we expect our patrons to absolutely fall in love with,” he added. “This is truly a landmark moment for us. It is always a great sign when we can expand and serve new customers in a completely new market.”
Besides the new additions, guests here can expect Jaffer Bhai’s other wildly popular dishes like the 1952 Gosht Biriyani, Murgh-e-Nargis and all of their famous kebabs.
About Jaffer Bhai’s Restaurants

With a passion in his heart and hands, Moin ‘Jaffer Bhai’ Mansuri, today leads a team of select chefs to serve what has been consistently rated by media, influencers and foodies as one of Dubai’s best biryanis. Jaffer Bhai imbibed the philosophy of pursuing perfection in the biriyani making process from start to the end from his father. He believes in identifying the right ingredients for a quality product and adding a distinct Mughlai flavour from India’s financial capital of Mumbai to create a biryani that has so far wowed more than 50 million customers over five decades of being in business.

UAE chips in for food parks in India to tackle insecurity




Reuters – The UAE has pledged $2 billion to help develop a series of “food parks” in India to tackle food insecurity in South Asia and the Middle East, a joint statement said on Thursday.

Speaking in Jerusalem at a virtual summit with UAE, Israeli and Indian leaders, US President Joe Biden said the investment could “increase India’s food yields in the region three-fold in just five years”.

The parks would bring farmers, processors and retailers together using advanced climate technology to minimise waste, conserve water and maximise crop yields, focusing at first on crops including potatoes, rice and onions.

The four countries would also advance renewable energy projects in India, including wind and solar energy plants, they said.

The projects would be supported by the Israeli and US private sectors, Biden said at the summit on food security and clean energy amid fears of global food shortages caused by the war in Ukraine.

Russia and Ukraine are the world’s third and fourth largest grain exporters, respectively, while Russia is also a key fuel and fertiliser exporter.

The war has disrupted their exports, pushed world food prices to record levels and triggered protests in developing countries already contending with elevated food prices due to COVID-related supply chain disruptions.

Going bananas and potatoes

Economic fallout from the pandemic, climate change, food insecurity and volatile energy markets, Biden said, had been “made worse by Russia’s brutal and unprovoked attack” on Ukraine.

“All these issues require cooperation and coordination, and none of us can mount a comprehensive response on our own,” Biden said.

UN agencies warned this month that the war in Ukraine and climate change could push starvation and mass migration to unprecedented levels.

Apart from benefiting local farmers, the food parks would help reduce trade barriers and unify food safety standards, Indian foreign secretary Vinay Kwatra said in New Delhi.

They would also provide India with an opportunity to benchmark its perishable food products for global export and allow Indian produce access to the strategic Gulf markets starting with UAE, Kwatra said.

He said Indian states Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh – both ruled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party – were exploring setting up these parks, which would initially cultivate bananas, potatoes, rice, onions and spices.

Gulf Arab states import as much as 80-90% of their food and while their oil wealth renders them less vulnerable to rising global food prices than poorer countries in the region, disruptions threaten their supply chains.

India, the world’s third-biggest oil importer and consumer, depends on Gulf state for meeting most of its oil needs.

Wealthy Gulf states have invested heavily in farmland overseas and have been investing domestically more in agritech, which is also a fast-growing sector in Israel.

Crop yields are relatively low in India, which despite being a major farm goods producer, lacks regular irrigation for around half its farmland. Venture capital firms are increasingly pouring money into local agritech start-ups.
