Cooking with teas and infusions

Discover how to cook with teas and infusions to add unique flavor to your dishes. Follow these steps to prepare creative and delicious dishes.

🍵 Choosing the right tea

The first step in cooking with teas and infusions is choosing the right tea. Remember that the tea you choose will greatly affect the flavor of your dish. For example, a strong black tea is great for hearty dishes, while a light green tea is better for light dishes or desserts.

🌱 Preparation of infusion

Preparing the infusion is the next important step. For a tea infusion, simply boil water and pour it over the tea. Let the tea steep until it reaches the desired strength. For example, if you want a strong, robust flavor, let the tea steep longer. If you prefer a more subtle flavor, shorten the brewing time.

🍲 Integration into your dish

Now it's time to integrate the tea infusion into your dish. You can use the infusion to cook rice or quinoa, use it as a base for soups or sauces, or even incorporate it into baked goods. For example, you could use an Earl Grey tea to bake a unique twist on a classic lemon cake.

🧂 Taste adaptation

The final step is to adjust the flavor of your dish. Remember that the tea affects the flavor of your dish, so feel free to add spices, herbs, or other ingredients to complement or balance the flavor profile. For example, you could add honey or lemon to soften the bitterness of a strong tea.
