This is the first Meet Arabia box. The theme is "Marhaba" or "Welcome". This box includes the main things you will see and\or experience when visiting someone in Arabia. Usually, the box would include 6-8 items, but this month they've included 11 items because Arabs are known for their generosity and for giving gifts to their guests and visitors.
Saffron Tea (Chai Zaffaran)
The ingredients in this tea are tea leaves and pure saffron. Serve it after a meal or if your guest requests it. Prepare it as if preparing any other kind of tea.
Arabic Coffee (Gahwa)
The ingredients in this coffee are ground coffee beans, cardamom, cloves, and organic barley.
Coffee Cups (Fanajeel)
These coffee cups are so cute. I'm not used to drinking coffee in such small cups but that's the way they do it there.
Serve these Saudi Arabian dates with the coffee.
I love these came coasters. They certainly represent the Arabian style.
Incense Burner (Migbas)
Ooh, fancy! This is gold unique incense burner is adorned with faux pearls and crystals.
Arabs use incense to make the room smell nice before visitors arrive. They also pass it around to guests before they leave.
Use these tongs to place the lit charcoal disc into the incense burner.
Rose Water Sprinkler (Marash)
When guests are ready to leave, you fill this beautiful sprinkler with rose water and sprinkle some in their hands.
Persian Rug Mousepad
They couldn't fit a whole Persian rug in the box, so they included this cute rug mouse pad. Haha!
Evil Eye Beads
You will find evil eye beads in a lot of Arab homes as it is believed that these symbols repel evil and envy.
The first Meet Arabia box was exotic, to say the least. I thought they did a great job with the theme and curation. I really enjoyed going through it all and learning more about the culture. The consideration and generosity they bestow upon their guests are very important in their culture and I thought this box represented that well. I look forward to seeing what future boxes look like.
