So…… I know that tea is good for you. I hear this all the time, and not just from my friends at JoysTeaspoon.com!  However, I live in sunny San Diego and the thought of a hot drink is not always what comes to mind while watching the sunset on the Pacific with palm trees waving in the breeze.  So I set out to discover ways that I could enjoy tea, without, you know….drinking it.

I love to bake and I love sweets, so naturally, I tried to incorporate this healthy tea into something sinfully delicious.  Here are some things that I have liked, feel free to try them out yourself!

Magic Moon with Berries

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups iced Magic Moon

Place the blueberries, strawberries, and Magic Moon in a blender. Whip uo a cold, non-dairy treat and pour into a tall glass!

Earl Grey Creme Ice Cream makes about 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups half and half (can use heavy cream for a richer ice cream)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 5-6 teaspoons of Earl Grey Creme in a steeping bag
  • 5 egg yolks
  1. Warm the milk, half and half, and sugar in a saucepan. Remove from heat, place Earl Grey Creme steeping bag in the pan, cover and steep for an hour. Remove tea.
  2. Reheat tea-infused milk. Whisk egg yolks together in a separate bowl. Slowly pour the milk mixture into the bowl with egg yolks, whisking constantly.
  3. Return the milk and egg mixture to the saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan constantly until the mixture thickens to a custard and coats the spatula.
  4. Cool the mixture and freeze in your ice cream maker.
Now if I could just figure out a way to pair up teas with Broadway musicals...

    Hey Sarah! You can absolutely use any tea you want with either recipe. These are just great starter ideas for the home chef to experiment with!

    I never would have thought of this on my own! What a good idea…as if I needed more reasons to make and buy tea!? Could I do this with any tea?
