Recipe: Maple Salmon, recipe by STARFLOWER in

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound salmon

In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.  Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).  Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a  fork.  


My personal touch tho this recipe

Put the salmon in a warmed serving plate and deg-laze the cooking pan with 1/2 cup of hot English Breakfast tea.  Add one tablespoon of maple syrup and one teaspoon of soy sauce.   Let boil for a few minutes, until it has thicken a little.  Pour over the salmon and serve with a cup of Tea Monde English Breakfast House Blend.

Bon Appétit!

Fight the cold and flu before they knock you down

This morning I woke up with an itchy throat and a kind of runny nose. I don’t want to be sick; so I whipped up my secret weapon to fight whatever is going on in my system:   my Power Booster Green Tea Special Flu and Cold Fighter.

Right after I had a first cup, I felt a change.  My sinuses unblocked and my throat stopped itching. I’ll keep drinking this special potion for the next three or four days and I’m sure no virus is going to survive.

If you would like to try it, here is the recipe:

4 tsp       Power Booster green ginger powdered tea, certified organic
1                 Lemon freshly pressed juice
1 tbsp     Fresh ginger root grated
1 tbsp     Honey
750 ml   Filtered hot water (85°C)

In a Filter-In Hario Tea bottle, or any teapot, pour together the lemon, ginger and honey.   Cover with hot water and let dissolve.
Add powdered tea, and pour the rest of the water.
Mix well and serve.
This drink is good hot, cool or cold. You can keep it at room temperature once it has cooled down, or put it in the refrigerator.

If you ever try it, I’d like to get comment.

Hojicha Japanese green tea and Sundried tomatoes cheesecrakers


This month’s pairing is Hojicha Japanese roasted green tea with one of our delicious Canadian Cheeses.

Finely cut dried tomatoes and sizzled basil, mixtogether. Take aplain unsalted cracker put a thin piece of St-Honoré triple cream cheese and top with the tomato mixture.   Serve with Hojicha Japanese green tea. A surprising delicious pairing! The nutty and roasted taste of the tea brings out the roasted flavour from the tomatoes; the cheese smooths the basil and the acidity from the tomato and balances everything perfectly.


You can buy an excellent high grade hand crafted Hojicha from Shizuoka Tea Garden on our website.  For those who prefer the quick solution, you can buy a powdered Hojicha very convenient and good for baking.

If you try it, please share your appreciation with us…
