Tea-Infused Potatoes

Black tea is used in this recipe to give the common potato a different twist. Steep the black tea for longer than the stated three minutes if you want a stronger flavor. Save the brewed leaves for presentation for garnish along the side.

Tea-Smoked Salmon

For those into grilling, this one is right up your alley! A quarter-cup of Jasmine or Oolong Tea is used in this tea-smoked salmon recipe, though any whole-leaf tea on hand should work just fine.

Sweet Tea Cupcakes

Dessert-lovers will really enjoy this scrumptious treat! The recipe calls for black tea bags, but you can use any loose-leaf Black Tea you have on hand. Get the recipe here.

Green Tea Cranberry Muffins

Strongly brewed green tea is used in this yummy muffin recipe to add a special twist on your traditional cranberry muffin. Use more tea during the steeping to get a stronger flavor or less if you want just a lighter taste of tea.
