    Roosie's Note:

    I'm facinated by recipes that cook with teas, so here's another! This one is from the book "Cooking with Green Tea" by Ying Chang Compestine but republished in the June '04 issue of Taste For Life magazine. **Gunpowder green tea is one of the varieties that was common in the late 18th century. It is a green tea in which the leaves have been rolled up giving it a granular appearence, leading to its name.

      This dish has lots of flavor- the red chili of course contributes a great deal of it, but I think the green tea definitely adds a pleasant earthy taste too and is nicely complemented by the lemon zest. Attractive as well, with the various colors (I used a yellow bell pepper instead of red and zucchini since that is what I had on hand). Thanks for posting !
