Tea is the second most widely-consumed beverage in the world after water. In the U.S., around 80% of households drink tea, and it's increasingly in demand with sales rising by 6% in the last five years. The U.S. is the third largest tea importer in the world, and 69% of tea purchased in the U.S. is bagged tea instead of loose-leaf.

It's no surprise that the tea market has been expanding with tea being linked to everything from a healthy, natural increased metabolism to cancer prevention. But, do you really know what's in your tea bag? You might want to put down your teacup before reading on.

Who'd you want to spend high tea with? :)

Entertaining is usually on the agenda for the weekend holiday and keeping yourself and guests well-fed and happy is a top priority. I like to experiment in the kitchen and keep guests pleasantly surprised with new treats I try. I love cold-weather beverages—coffee, tea, cider, hot chocolate—and I always have tea in my kitchen. Tea doesn’t have to be just for drinking—I was inspired to see where else I could make tea an ingredient.

Baking
Tea is delicious in baking—especially loose tea. Many of my richer teas—sweet peppermint, full-bodied hazelnut chocolate or cinnamony DepraviTea’s Chai Tea—are perfect to add in loose or brew and gradually add to the batter of scones, cupcakes or cookies. I like to brew about 1/3 of a cup of loose tea and not strain it, and add that in. Then the sweet treat is fully infused with the tea’s flavor.
