How to make it
- 1) Rinse the game hens inside and out.
- 2) Combine the other ingredients, except tea, to make a marinade.
- 3) Place the marinade on the hens and marinate 8-16 hours.
- 4) When you start the grill, remove the hens from the marinade and allow the hens to get toward room temperature. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking.
- 5) Pour the marinade in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes.
- 6) Add tea leaves to ½ cup water. Cook in microwave for 1 minute.
- 7) When the grill is ready, add ¼ of the soaked tea leaves to the fire.
- 8) Cook game hens on indirect about an hour. Turn them every 15 minutes, adding more tea to the fire and basting with the marinade.
- 9) When the hens are cooked through put them directly over the coals to crisp, about 2 minutes per side.
- Serve one hen for each person. Accompany with mango or apricot chutney.

I have never heard of this but will try it. Sounds delicious. Wonderful recipe. 5 forks and I will let you know of my success or failure. Either way, an adventure and that's what it's all about.

I am going to try this -- I love tea-flavoured food -- I have a tea marinated salmon recipe on here that is terrific. It's weird, I almost picked up some game hens the other day and then thought "What would I do with them?" Now I know. Thanks!auntybea in Vernon loved it
Love tea smoking, cornish hens are perfect for this...have also done a tea smoked salmon which was quite successful. Hi! M. Nice to see you posting, missed ya. You have my five. I think the ginger glaze I made the other day would be very good wit...morenotyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
