    Having lived in Japan (and now Taiwan), I love to infuse my baked goods with matcha; I just bought a Chinese-language cookbook on desserts made with matcha, and love Taiwanese tea eggs sold at every shop and night market!

    Something tells me fresh brewed iced tea doesn't count but that's the extent of my use of tea. I would love to learn more about cooking with tea.

  • tjnelson1hotmail  on  5/3/2015 at 11:24 AM

    Tea cooked chicken legs. (Boiled with tea and then smoked with tea.)

  • VitaminJ  on  5/4/2015 at 12:20 PM

    I actually have cooked very little with tea, sadly! I have recently been very into making all kinds of flavoured iced teas, and adding in tea to other drinks to make delicious, tea spiked punches!

  • MmeFleiss  on  5/6/2015 at 12:03 PM

    Matcha cupcakes.

  • rahiscock  on  5/11/2015 at 3:56 AM

    I love tea, but haven't really used it in cooking, so I really want to learn how to do so! One thing I do, however, is make chai tea milk, and use the milk to flavour porridge in winter (it's delicious!)

    Favourite way to use tea in cooking is to bake a cake. Favourite is Jamie Oliver's 'Earl Grey tea loaf'.
