Brewed Teas for Delicious Desserts and Snacks

Tea is more than just an anytime beverage - it’s also a great way to make some tasty desserts or snacks. If you’re looking for a simple yet delicious way to enjoy tea, why not try brewing it into your next dessert or snack? Here, we’ll look at some of the ways you can use brewed teas in easy, delicious recipes.

Tea-Infused Cupcakes

First up, why not try using tea to make cupcakes? For this recipe, you’ll need brewed tea (black or green are both great options), butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder, flour and your choice of icing. First, brew your tea and set it aside. Then mix together the butter and sugar until creamy and light in colour. Next add two eggs one at a time before adding in the flour and baking powder mixture. Finally add 2/3 of the brewed tea before stirring everything together. Now pour the mixture into cupcake cases before baking them in the oven at 150°C for 25 minutes or until golden brown - then let them cool! When cooled down, top with your favourite icing – whether that be plain cream cheese icing or something more elaborate like marzipan roses – as well as a sprinkling of tea leaves on top for decoration.

Tea-Infused Jelly

Jelly is a great treat for kids (and adults alike!). For this recipe you will need black tea bags, water and jelly crystals (your favourite flavour). To start off with, boil 1 litre of water in a pan and add 4-5 black tea bags depending on how strong you would like your jelly to taste. Let this brew for 10 minutes before removing it from heat and allowing it to cool down slightly. Once cooled, remove the tea bags before adding in the jelly crystals while stirring continuously until they have completely dissolved into the liquid (this should take around 5 minutes). Now pour the liquid into moulds of your choice - silicone moulds work best here - before leaving them to set overnight in the refrigerator. And voila – delicious tea infused jellies! Serve with Greek yoghurt or cream for added sweetness.

Brewed teas are such versatile ingredients that can be used for many delicious recipes! Whether you are looking for an afternoon treat to enjoy with friends or something special for kids' birthdays, these two recipes are sure to delight everyone who tries them! So next time you're looking for an easy dessert idea why not give one of these ideas a go? You won't regret it!
