Hokay you guys. Okay. Okay. I can’t even putinto words what i did with this tea last night. Okay?! Deep breaths.

So I wanted to try making tea cookies, with tea infused butter. I chose this tea because a black tea seemed smart for the first try. Oh my god. DO IT. Okay I digress, I chose a simple Whipped Shortbread recipe because it would totally allow the flavour to come through if I did it right. (I used 1 cup margarine, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 3/4 cup flour).

To make the butter (margarine because I’m cheap) it’s just one tablespoon of loose tea to every tablespoon of butter. In my case, I eye balled it and used way more than I should have because it was my first time, but the flavour was over the top so you don’t need to use that much!

Anyways, the smell of the butter was just.. honey and raspberry and I wanted to eat the leaves right then and there. But I made the cookies. And they were amazing, I can’t even describe in this super long rating. SO – got a cheap black tea that is bitter or meh? Make cookies.

I’ll be sending this out at a sample to a few people, so if it’s meh to you too, give a recipe a try!

Edit: If I knew an cheap and safe way to send these to each and every one of you, I would in a heatbeat. I have plans now for blazing strawberry cookies with a little bit of pepper and strawberries in the mix

Ashley Bain

I want to try this!!

Ashley Bain

I bought a bag of organic shortbread cookie mix a while ago that’s still yet to be made, maybe I should throw some tea in.

DaisyChubb

Absolutely! Do you have to add butter or milk to it? Whatever it is, put tea in it and your life will be changed.

Ashley Bain

yep – a LOAD of butter.

DaisyChubb

Perfect.
here’s the recipe I used to help with the butter infusing! I just poured my butter through a paper Tsac to strain the tea from the butter and I found it worked pretty well. You could prob also use a metal strainer or a paper towel or something!

Thanks Daisychubb, now send me those cookies you made with this!

DaisyChubb

I would if I could, girlie. And they are diviiiine.

Erin Hurley

._. you aren’t helping my diet

DaisyChubb

But the teas are! It’s ok I totally understand, I just started going to the gym regularly again and it feels great, but I have treats at home man! Thank goodness for tea, honestly haha

Erin Hurley

< I’m not helping my own diet

DaisyChubb

Well, just be happy sista! You only live once my friend. So be happy and eat happy and have awesome people surrounding you and you’ll find happiness no matter what. I know you have the willpower to make whatever lifestyle changes you want to in your life, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with a snack or a yummy thing that is calling your name. My opinion may not be a popular one, but I believe a diet needs a little cheating here and there. Otherwise it’s way too easy to fall off the wagon completely. (only in my opinion of course, but enjoy life!) Hang in there doodle!

The Seattle Tea Snob

Wait are there cookies in tea swaps, I think I’m missing something quite wonderful!

DaisyChubb

If I could send my tea cookies knowing they wouldn’t arrive as a box of crumbs, I would totally send them to you, and it would be quite wonderful! But I am so cheap, man I am I ever cheap. Sorry dudes! It’s an easy recipe though if that helps :D

The Seattle Tea Snob

I believe that my laziness probably rivals your cheapness, it is a conundrum indeed. Are they to little round cookies that have nuts in them and are covered in powdered sugar?

DaisyChubb

Well speaking of lazy, I just made whipped shortbread with tea butter. So … 3 ingredients.. cheap AND lazy! heck yes.

Day #6 of 24……

And a lovely sample from DaisyChubb. Thanks so much, Lady!

This one does have a sweetness and a light raspberry flavor. I wish I could say that the tea base complemented the flavors well, but it did not. I think they need a smoother, sweeter base to be able to get the most out of this flavor combination. It is good, but it could be so much better. Perhaps I will try a shorter steep time and see what that does for it.

Mug method (2 tsp. tea, boiled water, 4 minutes. Very much required sweetening.)
