Add Flair to Your Summer Recipes with Pure Leaf Tea House Collection

How do you improve your favorite, refreshing drink? Cook with it! And Pure Leaf Tea House Collection is the perfect ingredient to add to your summer recipes.

My family and I have enjoyed sipping the yummy flavors that Pure Leaf makes and I was excited to hear about the Pure Leaf Tea House Collection. I was delighted to attend a fun event in San Francisco where I had the opportunity to chat with the Pure Leaf team and learn about the new collection. On a perfect, summer day, I went to the Pure Leaf Traveling Tea House to learn more about the new tea collection and sample some tasty food made with tea.  First, I sampled the Sicilian Lemon and Honeysuckle Organic Black Tea. Next up was the Wild Blackberry and Sage Organic Black Tea and then the Fuji Apple and Ginger Organic Green Tea. All were absolutely delicious and wonderfully refreshing.

Next, I had the opportunity to meet acclaimed chef Matthew Accarrino of San Francisco's famed restaurant SPQR. Chef Matthew created a delicious summer soup made with Pure Leaf Tea and ingredients from the local farmer's market. He also made a healthy green tea smoothie, herb roasted polenta with slow-roasted beef with charred vegetables. The tea complemented the each dish and I can't wait to try them at home,

Check out the Pure Leaf Tea House website to get info on these and other recipes then head out to the farmer's market to make the perfect summer meal.
