Heat the water up to 185 degrees, or allow the water to boil and then pour it out of the pan into a ceramic or glass container and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Add the tea and steep for 3 minutes. While it is steeping, chop the onion, garlic and ginger. Strain off the tea leaves and then add in the remaining ingredients, except the salt and pepper. Before adding salt and pepper taste the marinade and then add those seasonings before placing in the poultry. You need to marinade at least 1 hour but overnight will get you more tea flavor.
