Tea seems like a great component to use in a marinade. Maybe not the only component, but one of them.
What teas would be best for a marinade? I'm thinking subtle teas would not work as well as something with strong, earthy flavors.
What food might be a good target for tea marinades?
Stewed eggs are a lot of fun. I haven't seen any recipes for eggs stewed in just tea. Usually it's tea and spices like cinnamon or star anise. Something simple like Assam. You boil some eggs, crack them but don't remove the shell, then stew them another 10 minutes in the tea/spices. You can leave them overnight. When you peel them, they'll have a pattern all over them, and a subtle flavor.
