Tea-Infused Strawberry Compote with Yogurt

We dreamed up this tea-infused berry compote recipe when we started craving the summery flavours of our Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait tea outside of teatime. It’s got all the freshness of ripe strawberries and rich dates, plus a touch of creaminess from our dessert-inspired tisane. But let’s be honest – it’s the tea’s tangy rhubarb punch that really steals the show. We love pairing this bright preserve with Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of pistachios for some added crunch.

Expecting company? This sweet-yet-healthy dessert is sure to impress. Just grab some clear cocktail glasses and layer the ingredients artfully (we know you have some mad plating skills) for a treat that’s sweet on the eyes, too.

Bonus? It makes for Insta-worthy pics. Make your followers’ mouths water by sharing your shot on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #DTrecipes. Who knows, maybe you’ll start a new tea-infused food trend…
