mmm thanks cavo! Having a small cup of this one today and the rest is going into my experiments with dinner tonight. For whatever reason, cooking with smoky teas seems to be what i like to do. Since this is smokey but not overpowering, I’m mixing this one up with a bit of spice! :) I’m glad i have a bit more of this left to have a real cup of later!

Do let us know what you end up cooking! Since I just got this tea and won’t be able to drink it all, I’d love to try some recipes with it.

Try adding a spoonful of maple syrup to your cup :)

OMGsrsly

I don’t have maple syrup! I know, a Canadian without maple syrup… my excuse is it’s $$$ out here.

Sil

omg – only reason we have it actually is because costco carries it LOL I made two versions tonight – 1 with lemon dill spices along with the tea and the other with habenaro and roasted garlic spices. We preferred the spicy one but both were good.

OMGsrsly

Do you just sprinkle the tea leaves in, or make the tea and add it as a liquid? That’s the part I’m not sure about… :) I should put maple syrup on my list for my next Costco trip.

Sil

OMG – i’ve done both but i prefer it as a tea – marinate versus a rub. So i brew the tea up – slightly stronger than i would for a cup of tea, marinate it along with herbs and spices for about 30 mins and then we grill it/fry it/bake it :)

Excellent. Thanks!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
