So, it's an ancient Chinese custom to add spent tea leaves to salads, soups, and as a garnish on top of meats. In addition, the Japanese brew matcha tea from a powder of ground tea leaves and drink the powder along with the liquid. They also utilize various tea extracts and powders for a wide variety of culinary purposes. Anyone else use tea in their cooking?
I'm going to start making better use of my leftover tea leaves and not just toss them in the garbage. Waste not, want not! I don't know what kind of benefit I'll get from this, but it's a plant-based food that has been around for thousands of years, so why not?
Anyone here ever used tea for non-drinking purposes? This should be interesting to try out!
