Tea is an excellent ingredient to use in cooking. For a sweet tooth, it is delicious in sponges and financiers flavoured with Matcha green tea, or in truffles, mousses and chocolate tarts. In savoury dishes, it is a perfect partner for fish and poultry, rice, vinaigrettes and olive oils. It will add a flavourful new dimension to your cooking and give you more opportunities to taste tea throughout the day!
Delicious and easy to make, we bring you recipes combining French gastronomy with the varied flavours of teas from around the world. In these recipes, tea features as an ingredient in its own right.
If you wish to learn more about cooking with tea, L'Ecole du Thé at Le Palais des Thés offers cookery classes using tea: “Escapes into the world of tea”.
With the book La Cuisine au thé (in French), discover around 40 recipes using tea as an ingredient. The book is the result of six years of collaboration between L’Ecole du Thé and Sylvain Sendra, chef of the Itinéraires restaurant in Paris. Chicken casserole with Sam Bodhi black tea from Sri Lanka, asparagus tartlets with Long Jing, and jasmine tea sorbet are just some of his tempting dishes on offer.Tea and healthTea at the office
