Food & Drink
Located at Camp:


YOUniversal Tea House (4:45 + D) designed by Gregg Fleishman (Temple 2013) -- offers exotic Persian / Iranian desert-friendly teas and sherbets + hospitality every day. We'll try to be open 6 - 8 hours each day depending on demand, from noon onward.

Don't miss our open Iranian dinner on Weds night, starting at 8pm. Nothing like yummy Iranian / Persian stews over fluffy rice and tahdig, on the playa!!😋

Since our camp consists of mostly veteran burners of Iranian / Persian descent, we are really good at two things that can be helpful on the playa, hospitality and fun desert dwelling wisdom. We plan on showcasing both for our fellow burners.

As such the YOUniversal Tea House will include a daily variety of ancient Iranian / Persian favorites, time tested to do well in a desert setting:

Drinks like:
Persian Tea (optionally with Cardamom)
Sekanjebin - Honey / Vinegar + Mint drink served with lettuce dip
Sharbeteh Albaloo - Sour Elderberry Sherbet
Sharbateh Behleemoo - Quince Lime Sherbet
Dough - Yogurt Drink
Ab-du-khiar - Cold Yogurt, Cucumber, Herbs, Walnuts and Raisins Soup

Treats like:
Sohan - Persian Saffron Brittle
Noon Nokhod-chee - Chick Pea treats
Gaz - Nougat like taffy with pistachos embedded
Baghlava - Persian Baklava
Zulbia / Bamieh - Sugar-Syrupy Dough
Sohan Asali - Persian Almond Brittle
Shirini e Zaban - Persian Puff Pastry
Ranginak - Date and Walnut squares
Lavashak - Sweet or Sour Fruit roll-ups of various kinds
