Ever wondered how to bake with tea? Wonder no further, for this blog post will unveil the mystery behind tea infusions! If you’re here, there’s a high chance that you know tea flavours can be tricky to incorporate into bakes.
Personally, I find the infusion of tea flavours in bakes challenging. Firstly, compounds responsible for tea flavours are fragile and could be easily destroyed under the high heat process during baking. Secondly, these tea flavours might be masked by other ingredients, such as butter or even sugar.
During my experiments for this guide on “How to Bake with Tea”, I did two bakes: Rose and Marigold Tea Cookies and Berry Yummy Tea Cakes.
A special shoutout to Gryphon Tea as well, for supplementing me with tea leaves to experiment! These teas are some of my favourite and I am not saying so just because. Try it and you will know!
