I created a recipe using loose Chinese Green Tea and lemon as the primary flavor builder for grilled chicken leg quarters. The end product was a subtly flavored and citrus scented bird with lots of smoky infusion and a cacophonous blend of earthy tones. Using this tea as a marinade, helps to infuse the chicken with the boundless enzymes that make Chinese Green Tea so popular! Feel free to use other parts of the chicken if you like. The longer you marinate it, the more pronounced the flavor.
