Will Dallas ever embrace tea culture?

Jan 12, 11:00 AM

In this episode, the Dallas Morning News food team talks tea with Rakkasan Tea co-founder Brandon Friedman, a combat veteran who learned about tea while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. He talks about why selling tea is “kinda like being a drug dealer,” and why it’s a “stop drink” that creates a sense of calm amid the chaos of war — or just your daily life. The team also talks to Tanner Agar, owner of Rye restaurant in Dallas, about his new 3% surcharge for employee benefits, and then you’ll hear from listeners about their rather inspiring goals for 2023, be it feeding hungry children or just learning how to park correctly.
