Buttered Moonlight Earl Grey

Posted 12/14/2016

In the mood for something decadent? Try buttering up one of our most popular black teas – Moonlight Earl Grey. By itself, this tea features bergamot citrus, vanilla, and cream. Blending it with a bit of butter and our Baker’s Blend creates a rich and creamy refreshment.

1 TBSP Moonlight Earl Grey
2 TSP Baker’s Blend
1 TSP Vanilla Bean Infused Cane Sugar
2 & 1/2 TBSP Butter

1. Soften the butter by letting it sit unrefrigerated for about 20 minutes.
2. Blend together the butter, Baker’s Blend, and Vanilla Bean Sugar.
3. Bring 16 oz of water to a boil, and then steep the tea for 4-5 minutes.
4. Add the butter mixture to the tea and stir until dissolved.
5. Serve and enjoy!

Share this rich treat with a friend…or keep it all for yourself – we won’t tell!

If you’re preparing this on a particularly cold winter night, feel free to add 2 ounces of dark rum to the mix.

This recipe may be used with other full-bodied teas, such as regular Earl Grey (or Decaf), Assam, Black Dragon Pearls, or Chai blends.
