Sencha and Hojicha Flavored Soft Cookies 

I decided to make these soft cookies using tea leaves and paired them with hojicha milk tea. I ground the tealeaves using a mill and added it to the cookie dough. I thought it was a great ideas because you can consume all of the nutrients in the tea leaves and make sure that the old tea leaves don’t go to waste.  You can also enjoy the nice roasted aroma of the tea when you bake them. Please give it a try yourself! 😊
