Thinking Outside The Cup : Idea #1

Tea isnt just for drinking , for centuries it has been used for all sorts of different things from dying fabrics to soothing tooth can even cook with it!
Here by popular demand is the first installment of "Thinking Outside The Cup" a monthly post about all the various uses of tea.
Now that we are getting into these cooler months I thought I might start with one of my favorite autumnal recipes....
Puerh Baked Chicken Breast
For the Rub:
-3 Tbp Autumnal Leaves Puerh ( if you prefer it to be more subtle 2 Tbp)
-1 Tbp Sea salt
-2 Tbp cumin seeds
- 2 Tbp paprika (smoked)
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Combine ingredients and grind until fine
-Rub (free range) chicken breasts with olive oil and then with the rub.
-Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
-Switch the oven to broil and grill for 5 minutes on each side.
.....pairs well with acorn squash drizzled with a little maple syrup , salt n' pepper...and of course a cup of tea!!!
