    Recipe Citrus Herbal Tea Rub

    This might be old news to some of you, but I have never heard of using tea in a rub. The recipe says "does wonders for lighter protein like chicken and fish. Slow-cooking in liquid allows the tea to "steep", which brings out its subtle flavor". Sounds intriguing to me. Citrus Herbal Tea Rub...

    Recipe Saffron and Marmalade Tea Bread

    There is a traditional Cornish tea bread made with saffron and dried fruit and I was reading that bakers used to make it with whole threads of saffron rather than crushed, pounded saffron. This was to show customers that the saffron was real and not a fake substitute. Saffron and orange work...

    Flora tea

    My partner and I went to a coffee festival some time ago and the big surprise at it was this beautiful, natural tea. It's a little ball that you drop at the bottom of the glass and, when you pour hot water over it, it blooms like a flower. It tastes refreshing (there's a few different flavours)...

    Odd question about tea

    Been thinking about the various drinks that call themselves 'tea'. 'Tea' is not a process or a way of cooking it is a drink made from the tea plant just as coffee is a drink made from coffee beans. So why do we seem to call any drink involving hot water 'tea' ? If I ordered a van from a dealer...

    Fresh tea

    Has anyone ever had tea made from fresh, not dried tea leaves? Over here in Australia I have come across a brand of fresh tea called Prana Chai. It comes in 2 varieties, one sweetened with agave and the other with honey (masala blend). It's rather nice. The Australian site is this one...

    Recipe Indian Ginger Cardamom Chai

    So after my Ginger beer idea was taken by a certain @classic33, I thought I'd still share some liquid and thought of a simple Ginger Tea which I am always happy to sip on. Since I am not that great at putting together my own recipes, I decided to do a search and stumbled on Ginger Tea with a...

    Recipe Tumeric Tea

    Tumeric is something that I have always had in the mix of local curry powder I can buy around my area. However, it has always been foreign to me. I didn't even know what it LOOKED like until very recently when I saw it at my local asian supermarket. Now that I have learnt how good it is for you...

    Too Much Iced Tea Bad For You?

    Earlier last year, there were some articles popping up about a guy who went into kidney failure and had to go on dialysis. The doctors were confused as to what caused this, and eventually discovered that he had been drinking about a gallon of iced tea per day, which they are speculating is what...

    Review Twinings Moroccan Mint Tea

    Humm... the notes about it say Disappointing were my thoughts. I'm not an expert and it wasn't served from a silver teapot into a glass cup. In fact no silver or glass was involved in its preparation or serving. Perhaps that is where I went wrong? I could taste the spearmint and that was...
