Swap Espresso With Tea For A Tiramisu Without The Coffee Taste
The Italian dessert tiramisu is renowned for its rich coffee flavor, but if you’re sensitive to caffeine, don’t enjoy coffee, or simply want a new dessert, try using tea instead.
Infusing your tiramisu with tea can offer a milder yet more nuanced dessert with a range of flavors, depending on the tea variety you choose.
You can use a spiced chai for a cozy, complex dessert; Earl Grey for a citrusy, floral, and herbal flavor; or green tea for a grassy, refreshing variation.
Brew a cup of tea, which should be strong and concentrated to ensure you get all the flavor. Let it cool to room temperature and then begin assembling your tiramisu as usual.
Dip the ladyfingers in the tea to capture all that flavor. You’ll also need to taste as you go and perhaps hold back on added sugar, depending on the sweetness of your tea.
