Cupcake Ingredients:SRC: www.piperandleaf.com/piper-pipes/2015/4/25/recipe-tea-riffic-cupcakes-with-tea-icing
3/4 cup butter at room temp
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cup self rising flour
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup Smashberry Tisane (cooled) tea concentrate*
1 cup butter at room temp
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup Lemon Berry Blush (cooled) tea concentrate*
Whip the butter until creamy, then add your sugar and beat. When combined, add in the eggs, one at a time. Now, the buttermilk and tea concentrate can be combined and added in parts. I recommend this: add about 1/4 cup flour into the butter/sugar/egg mixture, and carefully beat. Then, add some of the milk/tea. Back to the flour, adding about 1/4 cup until it's blended nicely, then the wet. Continue until all ingredients are combined. Pour your batter into paper-lined, regular sized cupcakes forms, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Take a thin toothpick or cake tester to make sure you cupcake isn't wet in the middle!
Meanwhile, make the icing!
Combine 1 cup butter at room temperature, with 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar, and 1/4 cup of Lemon Berry Blush (cooled) tea concentrate*. Whip until you have a beautiful, thick, creamy icing.
Warning: When they are baked, cool the cupcakes COMPLETELY before icing them. I added a simple slice of strawberry, and a few curls of lemon zest to make them look pretty!
*Tea Concentrate – in about 1/2 cup of boiling water, add 2 tablespoons of your favorite tea. Steep as instructed, strain and cool.
"...when you’re ready to brew, then you remove your tea bag from the Tsleeve, unwrap the tea bag, and then slide the tag and string through the Tsleeve and through the notch at the top, as shown in the picture to the right.
This is probably the most useful part of the Tsleeve, in my opinion. On the occasions when I’m brewing tea in a tea bag, the tag seems to inevitably end up in the cup with the liquid as it infuses. Either the string isn’t long enough, or the act of pouring the hot water into the teacup seems to whoosh the teabag right into the cup with the liquid and I either have to try to fish the tag out with a spoon or fork or I burn my fingertips trying to get the tag out with my fingers. This ‘feature’ offers a larger ‘anchor’ that doesn’t get swept away into the tides of my teacup."
