cook with tea, therefore = healthy? not necessarily.

its not unhealthy
its not toxic
its not dangerous

its more healthy than 1 cup of butter,
its more healthy than 1 cup of cream
its more healthy than 1 cup of sugar

There are plenty of tea based recipes for whatever genre of food. Id
say people are using it for flavoring and color. Plus it doesnt have
any partially hydrogenated vegetable oil :-). However I dont know what
they use in those pan fry skillets when they roast tea.

Who knows?

Nobody really knows what is healthy. All the things I was told were healthy
when I was a child turn out to be bad for you, and all the things I was told
were bad for you turn out to be good.

Whoever thought that olive oil and wine would be good for you and smoking
would be harmful?

But, what I _do_ know is that Burmese tea leaf salad tastes excellent.
And the best place to get it in North America is at the Mandalay Cafe in
Silver Spring, MD. which has to also be one of my favorite restaurants in
the DC area.

Not dangerous? Clearly you've never scalded yourself with a cup of the
stuff like I have.

I remember when Tobacco was promoted as a healthy habit. Wine was
associated with 'winos'. I remember my first and last bottle of
MadDog 20/20. All cooking oil was equally bad until the discovery of
polly unsaturated fats.

Just watched the stunning if inscrutable film "The Magus." Quite a
contrast to Senor Quinn in Requiem for a Heavyweight, and just as
brilliantly acted.

In it, he cites as a T'ang Dynasty poem:

"Here on the frontier, there are falling leaves
although my neighbors are all barbarians
and you, you are a thousand miles away
there are always two cups on my table."

These lines are quoted all over the web, but without more definitive
attribution. Does anyone here have more precise information?

Thanks-

I am also confused after reading "cook with Tea ".but you can take tea while cooking at one side you are cooking and other side you have a tea.

Ill see if I can find the Chinese character equivalent of this poem
and maybe see who it is attributed too. Ill let you know one way or
the other in the next day or so.

This is not much more information but here goes. I received that
quotation on a postcard nearly 10 years ago, and it became refrigerator
art. Attribution given is: 'Anon. T'ang Dynasty 618-906 A.D.'

The postcard was published by a Susan Branch, possibly from Martha's
Vineyard, for what it's worth. jh

I just went through 5 books on Tang poems page by page at a private
university library. Its not in there. I also didnt see any other
poems on tea, wine yes. From what I understand the poems dont rhyme.
They have the same number of characters per line usually five.
