Did you know that tea leaves can actually go bad? Depending on the type, tea has essential oils in it that can go rancid if it's sat around for too long. Don't let it get to that point, bake up some of these tea-infused treats and serve them with your next afternoon cup instead!

Teas are essentially no different than spices - they're dried, concentrated bits of flavor. Some are herbal, some are sweet, and others are smoky, but they can all add a really unexpected, interesting note to your next baking project. Here are a couple of sweet recipes to get you started:

  1. Mixed Berry & Jasmine Tea Scones
  2. Chai Tea Cookies
  3. Peach and Spice Tea Muffins
  4. Earl Grey Tea Cookies
  5. Basic American Biscotti
