This is really an Earl Grey Extravanganza! Earl Grey lovers will enjoy this episode http://bit.ly/2X1yp2O where we pair our delicious proprietary blend of Earl Grey and Earl Grey shortbread cookies made with that same fragrant tea!
As an Earl Grey fanatic, I could never find the perfect Earl Grey, even though we sold some great ones. So….we finally decided to blend our own. And it is the best ever. Soooo fragrant, so delicious. Just the perfect blend of essential bergamot oil and black tea. When I find recipes that use Earl Grey, that’s exciting!
Here’s the recipe for the shortbread cookies with our tea right in them and they are yummy! The recipe is a variation of recipes by sugarandsoul.com and Dine & Dish. If you don’t use the right tea, however, your results won’t be as good as they can be using loose leaf Earl Grey with incredible fragrance.
