Earl Grey Tea Cookies

Tea is so versatile.  Of course you can drink it.  But did you know you could bake with it?  Add some fine loose leaf tea into your favorite cake or bread recipe and it elevates it to a higher level of indulgence. 

We're going to share some of our tea baking secrets with you.  If your recipe calls for melting butter, you could add some tea right into the butter. Another option is to add some tea leaves directly into your batter or dough.  If your tea is too coarse, use a spice grinder or a mortar & pestle to break it up into finer pieces. So easy! Not only does it add visual appeal but the added flavor is exquisite. 

One of our favorites is Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies - it changes snack time to Tea Time.  We recommend any of our Earl Grey teas - try Baroness Grey for an added touch of Citrus or Earl Grey Blue for a robust Earl Grey with blue flowers. The Earl Grey Cookie is elegant and fun and, needless to say, you won't be able have just one!
