Cooking with Tea

Do you cook with tea?   I do some, but not nearly enough.  My newest tea cookbook, Tea-Inspired Recipes, arrived in the mail recently.   Nancy Reppert, owner of Sweet Remembrances Tea Room in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, wrote about it on her blog, Rosemary's Sampler, awhile back.  It is compiled by the members of the Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association, and is available for purchase at The Rosemary House.
Pictured below are my tea books,  and most of them contain recipes.  Since I can't photograph all of them, I've chosen six for this post.
I really like Tea Cuisine by Joanna Pruess with John Harney
There's a great recipe for Jasmine Tea Syrup [for green fruits] on page 92.
What are some of your favorite tea cookbooks?

Today I'm linking to Wednesday Tea Talk at The Teaist blog.



  1. This is great because I have been looking for a tea cookbook for ages and am so pleased you have some useful suggestions here. I've made Earl Grey tea bread (from my Fortnum & Mason book which I reviewed on my blog a few days ago) which is delicious but I've never tried any savoury dishes with tea. I'll make sure to check your suggestions out!

    And that is an IMPRESSIVE tea bookshelf by the way!

  2. I haven't tried cooking with tea, yet...but I think I am getting inspired!

  3. Favorites? All of Emilie Barnes' tea books and "Teatime at the Inn" are some of mine. Like you, I have gotten a copy of that great book of "Tea-Inspired Recipes" and can't wait to use it.

    Oh, and your tea books are so orderly! Puts mine to shame!


Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
