Cooking/Baking with Tea?
Do you guys do any cooking or baking with your tea? I’m a big baker, so I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate tea into food. Post your recipes here! I’ll give some of mine:
I love cooking with tea! My favourite right now is a matcha tea protein smoothie which I haven’t posted the recipe for yet but I will….
Here’s a recipe of mine for Earl Grey Cupcakes with lemon buttercream icing though!
I did it a few times: matcha crepes and dango, dragonwell rubbed chicken, lapsang souchong rubbed beef… I even did a gyokuro rice once, but used leftover leaves.

I’m sorry that I don’t have any recipes to share as I don’t bake often but I had to stop by and post about these great looking recipes! Tea pastries sound delicious and I’ve never tried any before. I’m not much of a baker so does anyone know where I can purchase some great tea pastries? By the way, thanks for the great recipes! I may try to bake but it’s always spelled bad news for me in the past.
Chocolate Earl Grey Cake: I’ve made this with all kinds of Earl but I like Earl Grey Cream the best.
Tea Creme Brulee: I’ve made this with Boston blend from Harney – yum!
Tea Scones: I haven’t tried this one yet.
I made Mariage Frères’ tarte tatin au thé a couple weeks ago: http://twominutesforbaking.net/2012/04/09/tarte-tatin-au-the-tea-flavored-tarte-tatin/
I once poached salmon in lapsang souchong, it was delicious!
Was at Lao Shanghai in Chicago, and had a killer tea smoked duck as well
Wow that sounds amazing. I never thought of the combination of tea with food even though it makes perfect sense. The combinations are endless! I wish I were a good cook so I could try different variations. I must try to find a restaurant that offers meals infused with tea!
Yup, LS goes well with any ‘heavier’ meat. I was thinking of mixing LS with salt and pepper and use it as a rub for grill this summer.
I was thinking about making a bbq sauce with some sort of black tea base, I was thinking assam or something really bold like that
This past Thanksgiving, I found a recipe for cranberry sauce made with earl grey and spices. I think it was a better accompaniment to the meal than traditional cranberry sauce.
Rooibos Cupcakes were a big hit with my family
Getting ready to try Roobios Upside Down Cupcakes
anyone done matcha cookies? with some canned pumpkin?? I’m going to try tomorrow but if you have any hints to help I’ll appreciate it :D Maple Syrup matcha by Red Leaf Tea and E.D. Smith’s canned pumpkin :D
I’ve only made matcha with shortbread, but it’s easy to add it to anything, just add a tablespoon or two to the flour and sift.
I can find tons of recipes for shortbread matcha I’m just a little nervous as it’s my first time :D
