Anne Haigh of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review picked Tea Sweets from Amai as a “standout product” from the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City. Ms. Haigh writes:
“Tea Sweets, by Amai Tea & Bake House (www.amainyc.com). Made with wholesome, natural ingredients (tea leaves and spices), adventurous flavors (lemongrass & ginger, Earl Grey & currant) and thoughtful design (individual shapes identifying flavors), the cake-like cookies are meant to enhance the tea drinking experience. A second product, Botanical Brownies, is made with dark chocolate and exotic fruits (lychee, mandarin, cherry blossoms).”
I also did an interview with Ann and Peter Haigh for On the Menu, a weekly, one-hour radio program on the wide world of food, wine, travel & lifestyle. We talked about the inspiration for Amai products, designers we work with, and of course (as every Pittsburgh radio program should) my alma mater, Carnegie Mellon. I have fond memories of living in Pittsburgh, and am so happy to meet press from the area. Thanks for the support Pittsburgh!
