    If you're like me and not a fan of the hot stuff, there's still plenty of ways to enjoy tea! From tea flavoured foods to tea infused alcohol, there's plenty to enjoy. Here's a summary below!

    Tea in food

    Cakes, biscuits, ice cream, and even meat/tofu dishes can be made with tea. Use ground tea leaves in dessert recipes, or use as a rub for meat and veggies!




    Tea in alcohol

    Tea isn't just to be drank by itself! You can get tea infused alcohol, and tea based cocktails. For National Tea Day today, selected pubs around the country will be serving Earl Grey Pale Ale.

    Check out this page for a list of tea-based cocktails!




    Iced Tea

    Iced tea is so readily available now that it comes in all different flavours, in a number of different ways. You can get it in cans, in small bottles, by the gallon, even make your own easily enough. You can get unflavoured, green tea, peach flavoured, lemon flavoured, etc etc. There's so much variety, and something for everyone to love. My absolute favourite is peach flavoured iced tea. I love the flavour, the smell, everything about it. The great thing is that it doesn't taste like your regular brew, so if you aren't a fan then don't rule this option out. There really is something for everyone.




    Do you like regular tea? Would you try or have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

    That's some epic food porn, that!
    Iced tea always makes me think of foreign countries, particularly Mexico, where there seems to be loads of Lipton's Iced Tea available.
