A FRESH-BREWED cup of tea is a soul-satisfying way to entertain guests, unwind after a long day or simply enjoy some quiet time curled up with a book. Adding a few homemade tea-infused treats can elevate your gathering to a fun and festive experience. So, tuck in with your favorite cuppa and enjoy some tea-time treats.

Earl Grey Tea Cakes

Makes about 1 dozen cookies

Similar to Russian Tea Cakes with tea leaves in the batter and a tea-flavored glaze, this recipe is unusual, but truly satisfying for the bergamot-loving tea drinker. Serve with Earl Grey, of course.

Tea cakes:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon loose Earl Grey tea (about 1 tea bag full)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped edible flowers, for garnish
