These look so good! And how dare your parents go to Belgium without you?? :-) Hugs.


What a creative recipe!! These really do look delicious.


Oooooo!!!! These look so good.


thanks for the batch! they're awesome, as usual. i'll miss cookie mondays so much. they were the best and you're the best! see u soon, g!


Now this sounds like my kind of cookie and something I can make from ingredients here...since I live in Brussels! Can't wait to give them a try. I hope your parents enjoyed Belgium


Hi Greg, I'll be making these this weekend, can't wait to taste the tea and chocolate combo!


WOW! You have an amazing memory...Dad and I went to Brussels back in '98. Those chocolates must have left quite an impression on you, but Belgian chocolate is the BEST I've ever tasted. Get yourself a passport and we can "hop over the pond" for some taste testing! Belgium is a beautiful country...and the mussels in Brussels are SO-O-O good!!

Hi, everybody. It looks like these guys are going to be really popular! Thanks for all your comments. :-)


Hi Greg, Very cool and unique cookies. I'm very surprised about including the actual tea leaves in the cookie though. How small were the leaves inside the bags? I'm afraid of trying with the loose leaf Earl Grey tea I have because I think it might end up with large leaves in the cookies, giving them an unpleasant texture.

Hi, Noel. Great question. I wrote a whole post about it here:


What an interesting recipe - I am something of an earl grey addict but have never really used it in cooking. I'll have to bookmark these!

Hi, Antonia. Please let me know how they turn out. :-)

These cookies are so awesome! A friend made them for a cookie exchange, and even my afraid-to-try-anything-new husband loved them and we have added them to our Christmas Cookie Plate. I did have to refrigerate the batter to make balls; or was I supposed to not roll them?

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, Kate. I'm so glad you and your husband liked these guys. Yay! I use a scooper to make the dough balls, so a slightly sticky dough is OK for me. No worries if you had to chill the dough a little. Whatever works for you! :-)


I finally made them! Used loose leaf- the magic bullet grinded it up very nicely. Used all my tea for the wet ingredients, so the dry went without, but they are dang tasty regardless!


Hi! I also made these and posted your recipe in my Hungarian tea blog called Tealevelek! I also have a video about the baking process! I have one question - when you mean 1 stick butter, how much does it weigh? (You know in Hungary we might have butter in different size - just make the perfect cookies :) ) Thanks for the recipe! I added some Grand Marnier, it was great!

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, MsTea. Wow. It's so cool to know that people from all over the world are eating my cookies. Thanks for trying out my recipe and for writing in!

I guess it is kind of weird that we measure butter by the "stick" here in the United States. Here's a helpful breakdown for you: 1 stick of butter = 113.5 grams or 1/4 pound or 4 ounces or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons or 14 teaspoons.


Hi! I also made these, and woow, great :) Thank you very much! Thanks for the recipe!
