If you're too heated, it will cool you.
If you're depressed, it will cheer you.
If you're excited, it will calm you.
William Gladstone (1865)
Organic loose tea provides a broad range of healthful benefits due to its high levels of preventative disease antioxidants (polyphenols). Use it as a base for marinades, an ingredient in flavorful rubs, brazing liquids and as a tonic.
Of course, you have to embrace the notion of adventure in food when combining ingredients that seem unrelated. However, adding organic green loose tea to a barbecue rub offers the opportunity to bring a new found flavor to the table. A bonus lies in the knowledge that health improving antioxidants have also joined the party, our bodies being the eventual beneficiary.
An Assam Tea marinade can be seen as a meat tenderizer, allowing you to consume inexpensive cuts of beef in place of the more traditional and more expensive products. The tannins break down the connective tissue of meats to a more velvety texture.
Finally, as a tonic for everyday betterment, medical journals have documented the extensive benefits of tea antioxidants. Organic loose tea, combined with a proper diet, can aid in weight control, cancer prevention and improving concentration and mood.
Of the various culinary styles expressed today, each has its flavors and traditions. Never before has the individual family table had access to such a diversity of foods, spices, and herbs gathered from around the world. Farmer’s markets, local grocers, regional and national retailers, taken as a group, provide a full spectrum of ingredients. The advent and utilization of organic loose teas as a flavoring agent and healthful ingredient adds yet another level of flavor to the modern diet.
Organic Sri Lanka Tea imparts a sense of calm and healthfulness to main dishes, such as roasts and stews. As you review the recipes of various cuisines, organic teas are more and more utilized in flavoring and dressing of meats, fish, sauces, and chowders. Food preparation once accepted as native to a particular area can now be sourced and tested against your traditional approach. The beneficiary of this broad knowledge of culinary technique is the cook, with more tools and more knowledge; the result is more flavors tailored to provide an adventure in dining.
