The word traditionalist evokes images of the exuberant romantic, who enjoys the timeless beauty of luxury foods. Surprise them on Valentine’s Day evening with a dozen rock oysters. Often overlooked because oysters seem complicated to prepare, you’ll be surprised how easy it really is. All you need to shuck an oyster at home is an oyster knife and tea towel. If oysters aren’t their thing then treat them to the detoxifying properties of Choi Time flowering teas; watching the bulbs unfurling in a deluxe link glass tea pot will bring instant serenity.
