DIRECTIONS

  • Place tea bags in a heatproof glass or ceramic container that holds more than 1 cup.
  • Bring 1 cup of water to a not-quite boil and remove from heat immediately. (Water that has come to a boil should be cooled for about 1 minute before using.)
  • Pour water over tea bags and allow the tea to steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags, squeeze out liquid and discard.
  • Allow tea to cool to room temperature.
  • If not using immediately, refrigerate (covered) until ready to use. (Depending on the temperature of the room, tea left standing eventually will develop mold.)
  • Allow refrigerated tea to come to room temperature before using.
  • Place cheese and minced herb in a blender and mix on medium-high speed to blend thoroughly.
  • Continue blending until mixture is smooth.
  • Gradually add small amounts of the tea concentrate until the mixture is spreadable, as desired.
  • Transfer the tea-cream cheese mixture to a covered container and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow flavors to meld.
  • Bring mixture back to room temperature before using, either as a spread for toasted bagels or bread at breakfast; as a spread for crackers, sandwiches or wraps; or as a dip for vegetable crudites and toasted tortilla chips.
