Have you ever wanted to go on an African safari? Chances are, the answer may be yes. Even if it’s not at the top of your bucket list, I think many would find it to be a once in a lifetime experience and would jump at the opportunity if they had the chance to go. I don’t know about you, but I think it would be fascinating to see these wild animals in their natural habitat. We don’t typically see these types of beasts in our everyday lives and for good reason. Quite frankly, I don’t want to see them roaming through my neighborhood…especially around lunch time! But what if you could still enjoy the ambiance of an African safari without the expensive price tag. What if you could create a once in a lifetime experience for your guests, by hosting a Wild Safari Tea. It would be an adventure they’d never forget. Sound exciting? How about exotic? If you’re up for the adventure, grab your passport, because we’re going to explore this wild idea.
Depending on the size of your group, it’s important to offer a few tea options, as your guests may have different taste. However, I would recommend that you serve at least one of the following teas. After all, we’re on a safari.
African Antlers by Harney & Sons®
African Rooibos Red by Twinings of London®
Chocolate Monkey Rooibos Tea by Art of Tea®
Moroccan Pomegranate Red Rooibos by Celestial Seasonings®
Organic African Nectar by Mighty Leaf®
Teas may be purchased online from the tea company directly or through Amazon. Barnes & Noble carries Harney & Sons in their stores, but they’re usually a seasonal item.
Serengeti Sunset Salad
Cut up pineapple, mangos, papaya, mandarin oranges, bananas and exotic dragon fruit and mix together.
Spotted Leopard Scones
Using a plain packaged scone mix, add chocolate, peanut butter and/or butterscotch chips. Bake according to directions.
Remove crust and slice wheat bread into small squares. Top with peanut butter, sliced banana and a touch of honey.
African Buffalo Stampede
Mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing and a touch of buffalo sauce, then add shredded chicken and place on squaw bread.
Note: Buffalo sauce can have a kick to it, so use it sparingly. We used a mustache cookie cutter, as it resembles the horns on an African buffalo.
This packaged mix requires water and butter, however, be sure to serve it up with some sweet conversations.
Because there’s nothing better than hanging out with amusing friends.
These brownies aren’t afraid to wear stripes. Get the recipe in Issue 1.
Be sure every guest leaves with wonderful memories and a cute party favor to remember the day.
Out of Africa Soundtrack
There are three things which are stately in their march, even four which are stately when they walk: The LION which is mighty among the beasts and does not retreat before any, the strutting cock, the male goat, and a king when his army is with him. Proverbs 30: 29-31
