After making my Coffee Cupcakes I thought it was only fair to swap sides and make tea the main feature of one of my recipes. As much as I love coffee I am also a HUGE tea drinker and think there is nothing better than a comforting cup of tea to help you get through a stressful day.

I am a girl of simple tastes and Yorkshire Tea with a dash of milk has always been my favoured blend. However I do have to say that I am partial to a cup of peppermint tea and sometimes Pukka’s matcha green tea if I have decided I am going on a health kick (this rarely lasts very long).

For this recipe I went for Early Grey, orange and chocolate as they are flavours that compliment each other well; you can actually already get a Earl Grey and orange blend of tea, and who doesn’t like the addition of chocolate?

I often find that as tasty as biscuits are, they are not the most exciting things to look at and therefore I tried to jazz these guys up a little bit by making them look like teabags- this also makes them great for dunking.

  1. These look great. So inventive. My favourite part though is they even come with a little string for dunking. I’ll be giving these a go for sure!
