Winter weekends mean that I'm often lingering by the kettle or near the oven to keep warm and away from the chill beyond the window. And when I find myself struggling to get out from under the comfy covers, I recall flavors of this tea infused baked breakfast treat that send me searching for my slippers in seconds.
Roasted Red Robe oolong tea (also known as Red Hood or Da Hong Pao) is infused into this comforting breakfast recipe to offer just a hint of depth to the baked oatmeal layered with juicy pears and sweetened with rich maple syrup. Known for its smooth, toasty, malty, and slightly sweet (think subtle caramel) taste, this particular tea has been roasted over charcoal to create its distinct aroma and flavor. Be sure to bring out the tea flavor tucked within the dish by preparing a pot of the tea to enjoy with each oatmeal bite. Plus, baking the oatmeal in mini ramekins give the dish a personalized feel that makes my heart skip a beat.
