Cooking Tips

  • You can use any type of tea for this recipe, such as black tea, green tea, or herbal tea. Choose a tea with a flavor that complements the chicken.
  • For extra flavor, you can add a splash of rice vinegar or lime juice to the marinade.
  • If you prefer a spicier glaze, increase the amount of red pepper flakes or add a dash of hot sauce.
  • Make sure to baste the drumsticks with the glaze a few times during the last 5 minutes of baking to ensure a sticky and caramelized coating.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftover tea-glazed drumsticks can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, place the drumsticks on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Serve the drumsticks as a main dish with steamed rice and vegetables, or as an appetizer with a dipping sauce.
