Rooibos Snickerdoodles with Chai Spice

 

Rooibos Snickerdoodles

Love rooibos? Us too. That’s why this week we’ve added it to the humble Snickerdoodle and upped the ante on the traditional sugar-and-cinnamon topped cookie!

To complement the sweet, earthy taste of these bonafide tea cookies, we’ve dusted them with chai spices instead of plain old sugar and cinnamon. We think we may have just discovered the ultimate Snickerdoodle – try it yourself and see!

To transform your Snickerdoodles into red tea and spice cookies, simply add some Tealish Rooibos Latte Mix to your favourite Snickerdoodle recipe. Our Latte Mix is a unique and versatile tea: made of stoneground rooibos and gently mixed with a bit of fruit pectin and cane sugar, the powdered form of this tea makes it a snap to add to baking! For these cookies, add one teaspoon of rooibos for every cup of flour, and combine with the dry ingredients.

Then, toss a few different spices into your sugar-and-cinnamon mix. Pick and choose from your favourite chai flavours – we love cinnamon combined with ginger, cardamom and a pinch of nutmeg, but allspice and ground fennel are nice, too.  Your kitchen will smell warm and inviting as these bake in the oven!

Serve alongside a nice cup of tea, preferably with family and friends.

Matcha Float

 

Matcha Float 2

March 17 is just around the corner, and we’re already thinking green! Try our Matcha Float to celebrate the luck of the Irish this St. Patrick’s Day!

What You’ll Need:

1 ½ tablespoons Matcha Latte Mix
6 ounces hot water
1 16 ounce glass ice
2 tablespoons milk
3 scoops vanilla ice cream (or more to taste!)

Directions:

1. Blend the matcha with 2 ounces of the hot water, using a matcha whisk to smoothly incorporate the powder into the liquid.  If you don’t have a whisk, stir vigorously with a fork! Add the rest of the hot water and stir to mix.

2. Pour the matcha and water mixture over the ice.  Top with milk.

3. Spoon ice cream over the drink, stick in a straw and enjoy!

This cool and creamy drink is an alcohol-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth and join in this weekend’s festivities!  In case you do overindulge, though, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.  Our Hangover Helper will get you through Tuesday morning!
