While it’s enjoyed around the world, there’s something about fried chicken that feels uniquely American and perfect for Memorial Day. Take a classic up a notch with this tea-inspired recipe. Start with our Fresh Brew Organic Iced Tea, and end up with some finger-lickin’ goodness.
Our Harney & Sons teas are so good, we can’t help but rub it in…to some meat! Think all rubs are the same? Think again.
This dairy-free delight is so refreshing, your stress will melt away faster than the ice cream.
This tea-infused cocktail is made for long, lazy summer days. Make it the way you like it—we went with our Peaches & Ginger black tea, but you can go with a classic Earl Grey or a Moroccan Mint, whatever floats your brandy slush boat.
- Lemony Gunpowder Butter
We love the sharp, robust, charred flavor of this tea with its hint of lemon. And we get downright giddy about it as a butter, melted on a warm ear of corn. If you agree, get adventurous and make tea butter out of your other favorite flavors.
- Let unsalted butter sit at room temperature until very soft.
- Mix the butter with our Lemony Gunpowder tea leaves (either whole or ground, your choice; ground tea will change the color of the butter, while leaves will give it a more artsy look).
- Shape the butter into a log and cover in plastic wrap, or place in a dish and cover.
- Store in the fridge to firm back up, or keep it soft and slather it on something slather-worthy.
