With summer right around the corner, you may not feel like drinking a hot cup of tea anytime after 9:00 a.m. With this in mind, we’ve put together a short list of vegan recipes that call for tea to add flavor to a dish, treat or drink.
Rose Pink (loose leaf rose petals)
For something sweet, try gluten free vegan crackers with rose or strawberry vanilla rose black tea cookies. For a savory & sweet option, you can experiment with rose in this recipe for persian stuffed dumpling squash with rose petals.
Minty Igloo (organic peppermint leaves)
Cool off with cilantro-peppermint tea and lemonade granita (slushie) or try something decadent like raw chocolate-mint pie
Canadian Breakfast (organic black tea)
Cresting Cranes of Legend (organic white tea)
Have you ever tried a white tea smoothie? It sounds delicious! VegWeb has a recipe and so does Bakespace. Another creative use for white tea can be found in this recipe for hot pomegranate cider with a white tea kicker. I’d say it sounds like just the right beverage to have at a campfire.
