Closeout Sale!

 Closeout Sale - Everything Goes!

After much deliberation, Tealated is closing its doors! We are selling what we have left in stock for $9.99 each, but when it's gone, it's gone! We will not be ordering anymore of the tea that is out of stock so if you don't see the tea you like, that means it is no longer for sale.

Thank you to all of our customers for supporting us, but we are headed in a new direction. We are focusing on sharing our love of tea with others through our company Teaprints.  Teaprints sells tea-themed t-shirts and we will be expanding to sell tea-themed totes, hoodies, and leggies too!

Black Tea Shortbread Recipe

We love coming up with new recipes using tea! Today my daughter Rebecca and I made our favorite shortbread recipe with the delightful addition of 1 Tbsp. ground Black Supreme Tea. Not only did they smell delicious while they were baking but they paired perfectly with a cup of Black Supreme Tea. So full of buttery goodness and melt in your mouth delicious.

Black Tea Shortbread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 4 to 4 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Black Supreme Tea, Finely Ground

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add 3 3/4 cups flour and mix well. Turn onto a well floured surface and kneed for 5 minutes. Add enough remaining flour while kneading to form a soft dough.

Roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch x 1 inch rectangles. (I use a pizza cutter to make this easy!)  Place on ungreased baking sheet approximately 1 inch apart. Prick with fork. Bake at 325°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown. Makes about 4 dozen shortbread cookies.

If you don't want to add the tea, this recipe is just as delicious without it. But, I suggest you try it with the tea at least once. They are absolute tea cookie deliciousness!

Caffeine in Tea

CAFFEINE IN TEA

Caffeine is a natural stimulant found in tea. It is said that the stimulating quality of caffeine found in tea caught the attention of Emperor Shen Nong, 5,000 years ago, who was invigorated when tea leaves accidentally floated down into his kettle of boiling water. Caffeine's invigorating quality continues to make products like tea, coffee, and chocolate popular.

Caffeine has pros and cons, and like all things should be taken in moderation. Drinking between two and five caffeinated beverages per day is considered safe for most adults. However, some people are sensitive to caffeine's effects. Each individual is different, so it is good to listen to your body and do what is best for you. Caffeine can be beneficial due to its stimulating qualities. It can help you get past the slump you may feel in the afternoon or stop late day hunger pangs. Caffeine can also improve clarity for dementia patients, reduce respiratory symptoms for asthma sufferers, improve liver function, and benefits in the management of type 2 diabetes. It can also help those suffering from attention deficit disorder by providing improved focus and increased attention span. 

Caffeine amounts vary between different varietals of teas and also with different tea processing techniques. Some believe that black tea has more caffeine than green tea, which has more caffeine than white tea. This is merely a myth. Another popular myth is that you can decaffeinate your tea by giving it a quick brew, about thirty seconds, and then discard the first wash. Some people mistakenly believe that the caffeine will be released by this method in the first wash and the subsequent cups will be caffeine free. This simply is not true. 

I am not sensitive to caffeine at all, and am able to enjoy a cup of tea up until bedtime, as are many other people. However, if you are kept up at night when you consume caffeinated drinks late in the day, then enjoy your cups of tea throughout the morning and then switch to tisanes (herbal teas) for the remainder of the day. Chamomile Tea is especially helpful at night to aid in falling asleep. I enjoy mine with a teaspoon of organic honey!
