The hum of the kettle on the stove, the sizzling splashes in saucepan, and the clinking of a whisk on the sides of a metal bowl are all sounds that make my heart skip a beat. I am at home in any kitchen, especially when I'm infusing new dishes with the steeped or dry tea leaf. PHL17's Eye Opener morning television show recently featured three of my favorite steeped dishes that highlight a variety of tea techniques. Beyond the traditional (and simply scrumptious) tea infused cookie, you can also whisk tea into a salad dressing, rehydrate dried fruit/vegetables, use it as stock and even steep it right into a butter.
