Orange Tea Shrimp

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by WiGal

Relax with your favorite tea and make some extra to use in this recipe. For the sauce, I suggest that you make a strong tea by using 2 tea bags. Posting for the ZWT6 Wild Card Challenge for Unrulies Under the Influence -spicy, sweet and relaxed! If you want to serve it with rice, try putting a bit of tea in your water. After Teresa's kind review, I have reduced the tea by half.

Yummy salad. Something different but it had a great taste. I let the sauce simmer longer but it still was very thin. I had enough leftover that I'm keeping it to use as flavoring for a dipping sauce. I didn't have the mandarin orange so I used the rest of an orange. I loved the smashed garlic. I used a large one and while it was cooking I shredded it in smaller pieces. Nice and tender, the tea mixture gave a great taste to the garlic. Thanks for posting. :)
