Jessie tweets & chats her days away working in the social media and public relations departments of Tea. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Jessie moved to New York after college to work in the fashion industry. Still new to San Francisco, she's constantly discovering new sushi spots and hidden boutiques. She's still dreaming of her last trip to the Caribbean and hopes one day soon she can play on the beaches of Thailand.

Little Citizens of the World

A post from Tea Collection CEO and co-founder, Leigh Rawdon.

This is Rudi. Age 11. Loves reading. Loves music, especially listening to his parents and their friends singing and playing piano or violin or bass. He generally gets along with his brother, and he appreciates the home his parents have made for their family.

Rudi Friedrichs, Age 10. Berlin, 1937 or 1938

 

Rudi is proud of his dad, a doctor, who served in the first World War as a medic, taking care of fellow Germans. He enjoys the family’s traditions such as the humor from the annual search for matzah at Passover. He has a lot in common with most kids we know.

I’ve seen this picture and heard these stories, and I always put myself in Rudi’s shoes. But now, as a mother of a ten-year-old, I see myself in Rudi’s mom.

Instructions
  1. Mix together and knead all of the dough ingredients. This can be done by hand, mixer or in a bread machine (on dough setting).
  2. If mixed by hand or mixer, once smooth and soft, place dough in lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise for 60 minutes or doubled.
  3. Gently transfer dough to a floured surface. Roll dough into a large rectangle until dough is roughly just under a centimeter.
  4. Spread melted butter onto the surface of dough (reserving 1 tbsp). Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon evenly on top.
  5. From the shorter end, roll the dough into a log and cut into 15-16 slices.
  6. Place buns in a well-greased cast iron. Drizzle reserved 1 tbsp butter over buns. Cover skillet and let buns rise for about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  8. Uncover buns and bake for about 15 minutes, just until they're golden brown.
  9. While buns are in the oven, beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla.
  10. Remove cinnamon rolls from the oven and spread icing evenly on top while they're warm.
  11. Best served warm with a tall glass of milk. Wrap in plastic wrap to store at room temperature for a few days... If you're able to stay away for that long!
