4 Awesome Ways Millennia TEA Customers Add TEA To Their Favorite Recipes
Like other plants, we believe TEA is FOOD.
We believe to maximize the mighty tea leaf’s powerful health properties, you should do more than just steep it. You should consider “eating” the leaves after a comforting cuppa.
That’s why we wash + flash freeze fresh-picked tea leaves (essentially the opposite of conventional tea processing where they dry and cook the leaves) in a world-class organic produce facility operated by our tea scientist and farmer partners in Sri Lanka.
The Result: the first-ever Un-dried, Food Grade TEA. Real, raw, whole-food tea, as close to enjoying it fresh from the field as you can get.
If you are wondering exactly how you could incorporate our FRESH TEA into your cooking, we’ve gathered some creative and delicious recipes from some of our customers to help you with ideas!
