Sherlonya's "President Grant Cupcake"
"I used tea to bake a tribute cupcake for Ulysses S. Grant. Because he was known to be a cigar lover, I wanted his cupcake to be smoky. This is where lapsang souchang tea came in handy. Infusing the milk in the recipe with the tea lent the smokiness I sought."—Sherlonya T.
Robyn's Lemon Cookies
Robyn's Lemon Cookies
"This cookie is sweet, no doubt about it, it's a sugar cookie first and foremost. But right behind the sweet stirs a mellow lemon zing from Bigelow's 'I Love Lemon' tea. And let me just warn you, they go down easy. They're chewy on the inside and crunchy around the edges. I gobbled up three before they were barely cool! This recipe makes several dozen, of course that won't be a problem if, like me, you love lemon sugar cookies. Or feel free to roll half the dough into a log and chill for a future reincarnation as lemon icebox cookies with cream filling."—Robyn F.
