Green Tea and Japanese Cherry Yogurt


This recipe calls for an unusual method for brewing the tea: First you heat up some milk (skim is called for here, but you can use whichever type you like) and then add the tea leaves and bring just to a boil before letting them steep, off the heat. Once you strain out the leaves, the tea mixture is cooled and combined with plain yogurt and sugar and put into a yogurt maker.
