There are hundreds of tea flavours and combinations, making it a fantastic ingredient to use in cooking. It is very easy to experiment with - just replace water in a recipe with brewed tea, following your senses to try to maintain a balance of flavours. Depending on the tea used, the results can range from barely perceptable to overwhelming, so keep tasting to make sure you're on track.
