The Simpson and Vail website lists recipes on the detail pages for a lot of our teas and tisanes – and we’re adding more all the time. These recipes are ones we’ve either crafted ourselves or ones we’ve found online and in cookbooks.
Today I decided to try a dressing that appears in the book Culinary Tea by Cynthia Gold and Lise Stern. The recipe is a Sesame-Ginger Garlic Dressing using green tea. On our website we list it under Young Hyson China green tea but today I made it with Japanese Green Sencha Tea.
The directions were easy to follow and the dressing tastes amazing! The kitchen smells of toasted sesame seeds and toasted tea leaves – Yum! I have some tofu marinating in it as we “speak”, which I’m planning to bake tonight and serve with the sauce/dressing on the side. I also have a fresh bunch of kale that I was going to steam and drizzle the sauce over. It may be overkill but the dressing tastes so great I’m anxious to try it on different foods while it’s fresh and fabulous! And while I’m at it – I think I’ll cook up a little jasmine rice with a small amount of China Lapsang Souchong.
