Eat Your Tea
Familiarly fragrant and tasty as a beverage, did you know tea is a delectable culinary ingredient as well? With this foodie-pleasing kit, home cooks can discover how various tea flavor profiles — pleasantly perfumed, mildly astringent, sweet and ripe, grassy, vegetal, woodsy, and smoky — add subtle layers of sophisticated flavor.
Five food-friendly teas are accompanied by a booklet of recipes in a handsome box set. Developed in collaboration with chefs in France, it features tempting sweet and savory dishes like chai rice pudding, matcha panna cotta, and tea-scrambled eggs. Tea sourced globally. Kits assembled in France.
