Health Tea Recipes
I ran across an interesting selection of tea recipes recently at the Enjoyingtea.com Web site. Now, before I go on let me say that I'm rather on the skeptical side when it comes to many of the high-falutin' claims put forth for tea. I'd also recommend that you proceed with caution when sampling offbeat teas and infusions, especially if you already have a health problem.
That said, there are some interesting recipes listed at this page, including Banana Tea, Peanut & Ginger Tea, Lichee & Plum Tea, Dry Fried Rice Tea, Shrimp Tea, Red Date Tea, White Radish Tea and Tomato Tea. Which all looks mighty interesting, whether or not they confer the marvelous health benefits that they claim to.
While we're on the subject of unusual teas, how about Jiaogulan, a "wild green tea sagebrush that grew along the steppes" of southern China. You can find out more about this one here. Once again, there are some pretty lofty claims made for the product, so do keep your wits about you as you peruse them.
