A basket full of Bodrum teas.


I got back from Greece just in time to miss all at the Bayram festival sacrifices, which suits me. The rest of the week has been taken up with preparing for a talk I'm giving today on local remedies. This is the basket I prepared to take to the lecture. It is one of my favourite baskets, a Sussex trug brought all the way from England but filled with local Bodrum teas: St John's wort, Sage, French lavender, everlasting flowers, Linden flower, olive leaf and "cough grass". Once the lecture is done and dusted I will have time to devote myself to blogging again .... Watch this space.

  7. What a nice basket (had to google Sussex trug)with all those lovely teas. I have to tell you this my daughter started Law school in Brighton and before that we went to Izmir for a few weeks....so my daughter stocked up on Turkish teas. Well the Brits were laughing and said why would anyone bring teas to England hahaha LOL But she has her favorites.

    1. Your daughter will love Brighton. Tell her to get up to Lewes too to browse all the antique shops, and eat at Bill's. There is a very good Turkish bakkal near Brighton university!
