A Culinary Approach With Tea Zone

Over the past year we’ve thought of new ways to innovate food with Tea Zone products. Most customers are familiar with our syrups for drinks, but at Tea Zone we hope to inspire everyone to get creative in the kitchen.

This year alone, we thought of a few recipes that paired our syrups and purees with savory dishes. It is easy to switch out certain flavors with our Tea Zone products and go from there. Our products are made with premium ingredients that allow easy swaps.

Swap our orange puree into your orange chicken sauce and taste the citrus flavor as if you used fresh oranges. Incorporate our syrups and purees for many different dishes from sweet to savory!

Feel free to get creative in the kitchen and test out multiple flavors with our extensive line of syrup products. We have a variety of flavors that everyone will enjoy!
