*For friends in USA, "biscuits" are cookies.
A couple of days ago I had an unusual urge to dust off my baking equipment and put a little tea in something, unsure of what the result may be. A quick online search revealed a delightful biscuit recipe I just couldn't resist baking. In a moment of inspiration I decided that adding a dash or two of super-strong brewed organic Earl Royale would be a good idea.
For those of you who haven't yet been introduced to this divine blend of natural Italian bergamot oil, handcrafted black tea, sweet orange peel, and cornflower petals that is organic Earl Royale, you need to get in on this. You're missing out. Truly.
I started mixing the ingredients and just before adding the flour, I had a sneaky taste of the batter. It was no less than heavenly. A mix of butter cream and egg with a divine wisp of Earl Royale. Yum! I could have finished off the whole lot, but was determined to complete the mix. The flour somewhat lessened the tea kick and decided to add more tea leaves to the brew next time I baked.
The biscuits were lovely and I think I polished off five or six before I walked away from the tray.
Here's the recipe - enjoy! x
Order Earl Royale now.

Do you inwardly cringe when someone refers to peppermint as tea? Have you ever wondered why some brew tea, while others infuse, or even steep tea?

You've probably noticed how your enjoyment of life takes a serious dive when you don't get enough sleep.
A couple of restless nights and your sunny self makes way for a mask of misery.
The good news is it's not you. It's the sleep.
Or lack thereof.
Sleep is one of the most underrated contributors to good mental health and the world is only just starting to wake up to this truth (excuse the pun).
