Cheese Fondue Scented with Smoked Tea
This is definitely the simplest of them all, in terms of preparation. All you need is to rub the fondue pot with a clove of garlic, add olive oil, onion's and cook over low heat until onion's are translucent. Then add the infused Lapsang Souchon tea and cook until it reduced by half. Lastly, pour in cheeses of your choice into the pot, heat until melted while stiring consistently. You can use either Emmental, Tome de savoie, Comte, Raclette or Beaufort cheese for this.
And once everything has melted, dip your baguettes into the fondue and enjoy ! I promise you, it'll taste UH-MAZING.... especially when the cheese just melts in your mouth along with the baguette. Yummm..
