this recipe has been developed exclusively for Tay Tea by pastry chef, Lizabelle Burke. Master tea blender Nini Ordoubadi’s loose leaf teas are a mild obsession for those familiar with them. Alone, the teas are notable; as ingredients in recipes, unbelievable! This recipe for light, rose-based cookies uses exotic Damask roses – superior in aroma and beauty to all other roses. Damask roses are fragrant, bright and normally used as perfume, so just imagine the effect these flowers have in these tea-party ready cookies! We hope you take this beautiful recipe beyond imagination and whip up a batch for a few best friends. If you’ve been looking for an excuse for a formal tea party – this is it!
