From the Beverage Recipe Collection
Before we decided to dedicate an entire section to just Tea, we had some tea recipes placed in the beverages section. They are:
Did You Know?
- January is Hot Tea Month
- After water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world.
- In ancient China, tea was regarded not only as a food, but as a medicine.
- Tea was not introduced to Europe until the mid-seventeenth century.
- Instead of water you can use tea in stews and sauces. It will help tenderize tough cuts of meat and add a rich flavor to the gravy. For example, tenderize a pot roast or stewing meat by using two cups of hot tea as a cooking liquid.

Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that stimulates alpha brain waves, the same ones active in meditation. Tea's yin-yang combination of theanine and caffeine may enhance creativity, multitasking and focus, studies say.
