Walnut Pieces, Raw
Shanti's raw walnuts are large pieces of nuts, without any addition of fat, salt, sugar or additives. They have wonderfully rich nutty flavor, without the bitter aftertaste found in walnuts of lesser quality. Walnuts are full of Omega-3 fatty acids and contain the highest levels of heart-healthy antioxidants found in all other nuts. These plump and buttery walnuts are ideal for snacking, cooking, baking, or topping foods such as yogurt, salads, granola, and cakes. The best way to maintain the fresh taste of walnuts is to store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 months or in the fridge or freezer for up to 1 year.

Tea and Cheese Pairing - by Safiya Motala
Who can resist cheese? The rich, creamy, sweet, spicy, umami, and/or smoky flavours of different types of cheese are a delicious and indulgent treat. Wine pairs well with cheese, the tannins and astringency help balance the palate from the rich creaminess of the cheese, and vise-versa. Tea works in the same way.
Offering tea to pair with food is not a new concept, and it is quite simple to have a wonderful tea and food pairing from the comfort of your own home.
If you are familiar with wine pairings, you can apply similar principles to tea. For example, you may pair a strong, aged cheese with a bold red wine. The strong cheese will have a high fat content and rich flavours, counteracting high tannins in the bold wine. Neither the wine nor the cheese will overpower the other. One nice perk of tea and cheese is the heat from the tea helps enrich the flavours of the cheese.
Black teas are higher in tannins than other teas, the perfect tea to pair with stronger cheeses.

When enjoying some of the better dining establishments in town, you will usually see your menu items accompanied by a wine suggestion – and it definitely makes a difference! Choosing the right wine is an important part of the food selection process, and can make or break the overall dining experience. In fact I know some people who will select their meal based on their wine preference for the evening, using the meal to accentuate the wine! Tea selection is just as important. Our exposure to good quality loose-leaf teas is increasing, with these same establishments offering a higher quality and diverse selection of teas, not to mention the great selection of high quality Shanti teas our customers have at home as well, right?
