I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to write about this here since I’m eating this tea and not drinking it but I think it’s fitting so I’m gonna go for it.
So earlier this week, I talked about turning this tea into food. Today, I made cookies. with this tea. More specifically, I made lemon ricotta cookies with this tea pulverized in my food processor. Among my ideas, I listed lemonade and cookies, and I sort of wanted to both but only had enough leaves for one. So I combined the idea. Vanilla-y lemons sounds really appealing to me. And while these cookies are awesome, the green tea flavor is overwhelmed by the lemon zest (home grown meyer lemons!) The vanilla flavor was present though, and tasted awesome!
I think next time I want to bake with a tea that’s not matcha, I’ll have to brew some tea real strong and see if that works better. But I’d probably taste the tea more without the lemon. But lemon is great too! And I get all the health benefits of consuming the whole leaf. Everyone wins!
Today has been an awesome teaful day!
