Using Tea To Make Tea Cookies

Every few weeks or so I make some green or oolong tea. After making the tea I grind up the leftover soggy mess and add it to a shortbread cookie recipe. It tastes sooo good. I started trying this when a friend of mine said that some tea places in Japan grind up tea and add it to their cookies in their shops.  I eat the cookies with coffee or tea over the next several weeks. Fantastic!

I recommend that you add the tea goodness when it's still a little wet and not dry because the texture is better in the cookie.

Hope you can enjoy this delicious treat as well!

Interesting idea. Thanks for sharing. How much tea do you use?

Thanks :)

What a lovely idea.
I also drink brewed cocoa beans; you brew them up just like coffee. Then you can use the left over grind in the same way, to add to cookies, cakes, & yogurt.

Thanks for sharing. I have never thought of that
