I had the opportunity to try out some teas for the breakfast episode of "A Fresh Take". No, I don't mean we HAD tea with breakfast; I used the tea IN the breakfast! I had quite a little of a variety, but my friend Leslie has more flavors and types of teas available than you could ever imagine!
I used her matcha tea in a smoothie. Matcha has a lot of health properties, especially being an antioxidant. Match is green tea, but its different in that it is more of a powder rather than whole leaf. Its great to use in things like green tea ice cream or meat rubs, and anytime you need a natural green color.
I used a flavored chai in my rice cooker oatmeal. Not only did I get the benefits of black tea, but since chai is made with cinnamon, ginger and other spices, it saved me even more time of having to add those myself!
Get yourself some teas and start using them in your cooking. Oh, and they are great to drink also! You can get some from Leslie Couch here: http://www.mysteepedteaparty.com/TIME4TEA/ https://www.facebook.com/teawithlesliecouch/
