  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons Rejuvenate Black Tea Blend

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Infuse the Butter: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the loose leaf tea to the butter. Let it steep for 10-15 minutes to infuse the butter with the tea flavor. Strain out the tea leaves using a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth, and allow the butter to cool to room temperature.

  3. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the infused butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth and fluffy.

  4. Add Dry Ingredients: Sift in the flour and salt into the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until just combined; do not overmix.

  5. Shape the Dough: Gather the dough into a brick, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to firm up.

  6. Cut the Dough: On a floured surface, cut the chilled dough to about 1/4 inch thickness and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.

  8. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  9. Optional Dusting: You can dust the cooled cookies with powdered sugar for an extra touch.

  10. Serve: Enjoy your delightful tea-infused shortbread cookies with a cup of your favorite tea!
