My tea sweets from Amai Tea & Bake House arrived today! So far I have sampled the earl grey & currant and the matcha. Both really flavorful and delicious! The packaging is very elegant and appealing.

They are taking orders until April 30, so you still have a couple days.
I’m headed out of town for the weekend, so I will leave you with this quote from Rousseau: “Little girls always dislike learning to read and write, but they are always ready to learn to sew.”

    Those cookies look incredible! I can just imagine the amount of flavor from the ground tea. Are they a shortbread type base? It’d be interesting to play around a bit with a good shortbread type base and different teas and flavorings.

    Those Chai cookies were divine, too.

    Speaking of cookies, I checked out my local World Market and they do have Tim-Tams. They are called Arnott’s wafer cookies, and they have a limited selection of flavors, but they Do have them. Thought I’d give you the heads up.

    My goodness woman! Your adventures in treats make me drool.

    Excuse me, but Rousseau’s an ASS! This former little girl has NO use for sewing, but was reading the encyclopedia at age three because it contained the World! He just couldn’t stand the thought that a well-read, well-educated woman might criticize his work. I know you love to sew, and that’s great, but please – there are enough living guys who want to keep us down; don’t let the dead ones do it, too.

    That tea looks worth buying just for the packaging alone. Beautiful.

    I found a british blog today called nicecupofteaandasitdown; they review all kinds of tea biscuits from around the world. (tim-tams and brandysnaps mentioned!)Thought your readers might like to know.
    I’m on my own quest for a particular brand of Marie biscuit one of the kitchen workers at work shared. So subtle and not overly sweet.
    loved your photos of down under and, well, all your photos!

    Hi Mariko– Thanks for posting a picture of the cookies! Several people wanted to order them for Mother’s Day so we extended the sale through May. We’re also working on shipping internationally, sorry we’re limited to the US right now.
    Kathy– I haven’t tried adding tea to a shortbread base yet, but it could be good because of all the butter. I always add the tea in along with the butter and cream them together so the flavor is really absorbed and transfered throughout the entire cookie. Any butter cookie recipe should work well. Good luck!
