Enjoying Tea in Recipe Form

Linda Appel Lipsius, CEO and Co-founder of Teatulia, was kind enough to let me reprint some of their recipes for you all to enjoy.

The first recipe I wanted to share is Teatulia’s  Earl of Bengal Cookies recipe.  Linda spoke of these in our interview.  Click here to read the interview:   A Visit in Vickie’s Kitchen with Linda Appel Lipsius   I plan on making these cookies…..soon.  They sound delicious!  Linda says she loves to bake these during the holiday season.

  3. Pulse together until the dough is formed. Divide the dough in half.

  8. Let cool for a moment and then trasfer to wire racks. Enjoy!


Next, I want to introduce you to Teatulia’s spin on a Mint Julep – Teatulia’s Green Tea Mint Julep.  I am a Southerner at heart.  I love the Kentucky Derby.  I love wearing a big fancy hat.  And, I love a Mint Julep.  Teatulia’s version sounds amazing and I have decided that, while watching the Derby on TV this year, I will be enjoying this wonderful drink!
