Mayur and Madn77 Chais

At Mayur 3 of our Chai’s are served:

  • Ami’s Basic Chai

  • Ami’s Basic Chai with Ginger and Fennel

  • Ami’s Basic Chai with Turmeric

Restaurant Mayur has been a staple in our family since I can remember. Some of my happiest memories are coming here and it is definitely, BY FAR the best Indian restaurant we have ever been to. It’s probably the only Indian restaurant we all enjoy going to.

As our family grew, we always brought them to Mayur and the rule was, YOU BETTER LIKE IT or you will not get “approved” hahahha.

At Mayur high quality is everything, and this is obvious when you try their food, so you can imagine what an honour it was, that they approved my teas to be served at their restaurant.

Read on to learn how it all came about.

Hop & Stork

Our Ami’s Basic Chai and Ami’s Basic Chai with Fennel is sold at the wonderful locations of Hop & Stork in The Hague, Utrecht and soon Amsterdam (can’t wait for this one to open and tell all my friends about it!).

Hop & Stork (don’t you just love the name? Doesn’t it make you want to hop? hahaha), is for anyone who loves exceptional chocolates with a wonderful atmosphere. When you walk in, you are immediately greeted by the genuinely friendly staff, and the aromas that hit you the moment you enter, makes you greedy and want to buy everything in that shop. Their moto is “Don’t count the calories. Remember the memories”, and we couldn’t agree more.

So come and find out how our chai ended up in their shops and how we (very happily) chose them as our chocolate supplier.

Saffron - why is it so expensive?

Saffron is a small, bulbous, perennial spice, a member of the lily family.

To produce saffron, the stigmas [the part of the flower, which catches pollen] must be painstakingly handpicked, cut from the white style and then carefully laid on a sieve and cured over heat to deepen the flavor- a process so labor intensive that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. Currently saffron is commercially produced in Iran, Greece, Morocco, Spain, Kashmir and Italy.

Saffron is a labour intensive crop, which makes it so expensive. It has three delicate crimson stigmas in the centre, which are hand-picked, placed on a riddle, and cured over heat to amplify its flavour. Apart from being the most expensive spice, there are many benefits of saffron, which makes it even more special. 

Saffron is extremely rich in manganese, which helps regulate blood sugar and aids the formation of bones, and tissues. It also contains vitamin C that fights infections and aids iron absorption. More interestingly, saffron contains over 150 volatile compounds. Most of saffron’s healthful qualities can be attributed to crocin, a compound in saffron.

At Madn77 saffron is used in several of our drinks. They may be pricey but it is worth every penny… that we promise you;-) So for today, we give you 10% off all our saffron drinks. Use code SAFFRON10.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s Breast Cancer month. About 1 in 8 women at some point will develop invasive breast cancer. 1 in 8! That’s a crazy number. We of course want to fight this and help find cures. We are not skilled enough for this type of research however we can certainly help in other ways like contributing towards foundations who help women in need. One of the foundation we found is Beautiful After Breast Cancer (http://www.beautifulabc.com/en).

So for the whole month of October from every sale we will give 5% to this foundation. We will also ship in pink boxes to support Breast Cancer Month, all you have to do is select the pink box. This box is generally €3.50 more however, for the month of October, this is on us. UseCode SUPPORTPINK.

Remember each box can be personalised with a special note from you so wether you’re spoiling yourself (which we are big fans of) or someone else, thank you for helping us supporting such great foundations.

Family77: ItGirl Studio

It Girl Studio is the branding and marketing company that helped set up our brand identity and messaging and who is writing this text now. Their creative is as great as their design, writing, hair, and dragon-slaying abilities. We worked with them because they used a mind-control device and made us do so. There is an 80% chance the CEO & founder of Madn77 will make us change this but 100% chance it will at least make her laugh, and at end of the day, that’s all that matters.

In the end the mind-control device won! And now they have taken over our social media too… May the force be with us!
