(2 Recipes) Cooking with Lipton Tea: Tea-smoked Prawn with Avocado Salsa; Mint Tea-smoked Cod Fish

Standard

Lipton has made its mark in the beverage market, statistically being the world’s most preferred brand of tea. Since its founding in 1890, Lipton has expanded its repertoire of tea from just the Yellow Label to now specialty infusions, green tea, black tea, specialty flavoured tea and hot instant milk tea. Tea is made for drinking, but as the culinary scene matures, we have seen the increasing usage of tea leaves in cooking. Tea leaves, when used in cooking, add a unique dimension of flavour and subtle aroma to food.

Here I’ll be sharing two recipes featuring two variants of tea leaves. For the first recipe, the Tea-smoked Prawn paired with Avocado Salsa, I chose the classic Lipton Yellow Label Tea. As Lipton’s flagship product, Lipton Yellow Label is made of the finest blends of Ceylon and Kenya. The signature aroma is one that most of us are familiar with due to its widespread popularity. Using this classic blend gives this dish the aroma of tea without additional flavouring that would have otherwise mask the pristine taste of prawn. Continue reading

1872 Clipper Tea, a brand that holds a strong reputation in the field of tea, has launched an online shopping store at clippertea.com.sg!

Here’s what I ordered: Bâo – Jade Osmanthus Oolong ($15), Bâo – Red Ruby Pearls ($15) and Seagull Teaball ($25).

The Red Ruby Pearls from the Bâo collection has since become my favourite tea blend. Its floral aroma is simply mesmerising.
