Esteban Sosa, a Spanish chef from Barcelona, Spain, came up with an idea for a tea set called the “Antique Tea”.
The set features tea-cured vegetables and herbs that have been roasted in a wooden vessel with a steam table, and includes two tea bags, a cup, and a bag.
Sosa says the idea started in 2016 and is a project of his “ex-girlfriend, the chef de cuisine.”
It’s an interesting idea, he says, and it makes me think of a lot of other interesting things that people have done, like creating custom food sets for the World Cup.
I’m trying to imagine a world where people like that would be a regular thing.
There are things like the set in my house that are a little bit different, and they’re not really related to the World Cups, but they’re fun and they can be a lot more interesting, he explains.
Sometime later in our conversation, I ask about his idea for the tea set and he’s kind of hesitant.
He says he thinks it’s a little too ambitious, and I ask him if he’s worried it might just be a marketing ploy.
“It’s something that I hope I’m able to do,” he says.
“But if I can’t do it, then I’m really, really sorry.
If I can do it well, I’m happy, but if I cant do it at all, I hope to do it very soon.
I think that I’m going to try to make a few things, so that’s nice, but I think it’s too early to tell.”
Sosa is known for his fusion of art and food, and he has created a few interesting culinary creations, including the Antique Vegetarian Tea Set.

And that is not a bad thing, he tells me, because the tea has to be good.
He does want people to know that the set is meant to be a “good-looking” project, but it’s also meant to evoke the feeling of a tea-tasting experience.
Sosas work has been showcased at the World Food Awards and he says he has an amazing rapport with the judges.
He has even been asked to cook for the judging panel at the upcoming World Cup, he told me.
Salsa says he was also invited to the 2013 World Cup and, although he didn’t go, he’s still excited about the chance to serve tea at the 2018 World Cup in Brazil.
The Antiquarian Tea set is one of the few projects he’s worked on, and, he thinks, it has a chance to make it to the big-screen.
I asked Sosa if the idea of creating a tea series for the 2018 world cup was a bit of a pipe dream.
“No,” he said.
“There are a lot good things happening in the world right now, and you want to see it in its best form, so you don’t just sit back and enjoy it.
And if you want, you can do a series where you serve it with coffee or some other coffee.”
He also says he’s looking forward to sharing his tea set with his team at the next World Cup event.
“I hope that people are able to enjoy it and that it inspires them to go out and enjoy a great cup of coffee,” he tells us.
The “Antiquarian” tea set is available for purchase at AntiqueTeaSet.com.
