Pasta and rice can be elegantly flavored with tea, just by adding a tea bag or a tea ball of loose tea to the water.

Tea is an herb, after all.

  • Lapsang souchong adds a wonderful smoky taste.
  • Earl Grey gives a subtle taste of bergamot.
  • Fruit tea bags add fruity taste (try pomegranate).There are at least a dozen cookbooks that focus on cooking with tea. Take a look at Tea Cuisine: A New Approach to Flavoring Contemporary and Traditional Dishes.

    Experiment to see what you like. We’re huge fans of smoky lapsang souchong, which is also one of our favorite drinking teas and the tea used in Chinese tea-smoked duck.
