As we start the first week of Black History Month, we appreciate the Black communities and individuals who have paved the way for us to be the proud black-owned family business we are today.
At Cori, we hope to continue to represent the progression of black excellence and carry on the legacy of those who came before us. So many have fought for our rights to be equal and their accomplishments and contributions to our community will forever be remembered.
We are inviting you to participate in Black History Month together with us, to honour the achievements of Black Canadians, past and present. Follow along as we will be highlighting inspiring and transformational black-owned businesses in Toronto this month.
A Note from our Founder:
To honour Black History Month, I wanted to share a recipe that has been a staple in my culture and household. This recipe is extra special to me and my family because it signifies the importance of community and family gatherings.
When one visits an Eritrean household, they are always served hot tea or coffee. What is unique about this tea recipe, is that the many spices are full of natural terpenes just like the plant-based products that we sell at Cori.
See below for the tea recipe that we call, “shy” ሻሂ shahee.
I hope that you enjoy this special tea as much as I do!
