I found Dilmah Tea (black tea) at Geant in Ibn Batuta. Thought I should post an update for others.

Thumbs up Thanks for the tips!

Good tip! I live in an area where a 1-litre bottle of maple syrup is currently between 20-25 dollars. Think I will grab one.

With regard to food, is there any limit to what you can put in your checked baggage? I read that I cannot bring 'homemade food'... any idea what that means? would that mean anything unlabelled or unsealed professionally...things like canned (bottled) beets, pickles, homemade bread. Or something else I can't currently think of ?

Have you, or has anyone, had any issues at customs bringing in food? Ever been questioned about anything or had it refused?

Can anyone recommend a good carpenter? I would like to commission some furniture we can't find in the usual places, would be happy to pay an artisan to build to our spec.

i have brought back [from canada] home made preserved items such as pickles + jelly in mason jars in my checked luggage and have had it scanned here in dubai on my way out of the airport. no one said boo, we were waved through.

also in said luggage have brought back maple syrup, supplements + vitamins, tea, bags of nuts from costco, candy + gum, peppermint + vanilla extracts [real stuff w alcohol], and more. have had my luggage scanned almost every time i've exited DXB and have had no one ask to check through or even ask if i had anything to "declare". except once they asked about a whole bunch of DVD's they saw on the X-ray which were just my photo library and computer backups. they shrugged and waved me through.

i think maybe if you were bringing in a a whole case of preserves or perishables or like 8 loaves of homemade banana bread you might get asked some questions.
