Dakshin is an ancient Sanskrit word that means South. Each item in our gift box has been carefully selected to celebrate the vibrant culture and traditions of South India. Our Dakshin Holiday Gift Box represents the rich heritage and diversity of this region that encompass the states of Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana.
The Heritage Blend is a re-creation of a family recipe handcrafted by a 3rd generation coffee roaster based in Berkeley, CA, with roots in Bangalore, India.This blend consists of coffees from two farms in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and is a mix of Plantation A and Plantation Peaberry, which are two of the highest qualities of coffee grown in Southern India.
The Nilgiri Mountains in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, also known as the Blue Mountains, are famous for their tea gardens. Tea is cultivated at elevations ranging from 1,000 to 2,500 meters above sea level. This green tea blend is handcrafted by the Chai Boss (i.e. Monica Sunny) and is blended in small batches in Atlanta, GA. It is the perfect floral decaf blend for nighttime tea drinkers.
This fragrant spice blend is the main ingredient in making Sambar, a hearty and traditional vegetable lentil stew from South India, Believed to have originated in the region of Tamil Nadu. Made with love and infused with tradition by a mother-daughter duo based in Atlanta, GA, this flavorful spice blend can also be used as a dry rub for meats and potatoes.
Grown on the Parameswaran family farm in Kerala, the Aranya pepper is vine ripened and hand harvested with utmost care to ensure maximum flavor and deliciousness. A blend of 10+ indigenous, heirloom, & wild varieties, this pepper was thoughtfully selected after tasting 9 different peppers from some of the best farms and estates across the country. She's complex and deep like nice wine, and still got a nice fruity heat in the back.
