Inspired Teas and Chewy Sugar Cookies Make an Unexpected Perfect Pair

To help you throw your most inspired parties yet, we’ve partnered with Pure Leaf Tea House Collection. This sweet treat finds just the right balance in fruity, floral teas. Turns out sunshine can live in your glass and in cookie form.

Tea can be transporting, especially when enhanced by complementary flavors that ignite the imagination. Fuji apple with ginger; wild blackberry with sage; Sicilian lemon with honeysuckle. Close your eyes for a minute, immersed in those flavors: Where did you go? To a tea house in Hokkaido? Or a villa in Palermo? If you manage to return from those travels, there’s an easy way to bring anyone in your orbit to an equally enchanting place. Simply serve teas showcasing those inventive flavor combinations with something as versatile and comforting as these chewy sugar cookies.

As you can see, these cookies are truly all-purpose and at-home anywhere. Indulge, smile, repeat—wherever you happen to be!
