Healthy Recipes for Your Next Football Party
If you’re like us, you’ve been anxiously counting down the days until the kick-off of football season. Alas, the long wait is over, and Teatulia Organic Teas is here to help you plan your season opener party with some delicious, healthy recipes that will make a Broncos victory taste that much better.
The recipes featured below are from “Out Cooking It – Recipes from Cancer Survivors & Supporters”, a collection full of yummy, healthy, and easy to make recipes submitted by cancer survivors. Our long time friends at First Descents, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young adults battle cancer, put the collection of recipes together. We have contributed to a number of their works and even offered up our Tea Bar for the photo-shoot of all these delicious recipes!
The proceeds from the book will go to helping young adults who are battling cancer cope through various recreational and outdoor activities. To learn more about First Descents and their cause, visit their website at: https://firstdescents.org/. Go Broncos!

Earl Grey Cookies
Recipe by Teatulia Organic Teas
Mortar and pestle
Parchment paper or foil
18 gm Teatulia Earl Grey Tea (9 whole leaf tea bags)
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp water
1 cup unsalted butter, softened and cut into pieces
1. Grind the tea from the tea bags into a fine powder (using a mortar and pestle works best).
2. Pulse together all dry ingredients in a food processor.
3. Then add the vanilla, water and butter. Pulse together until the dough is formed. Divide the dough in half. Place each half on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a 12 inch log, about 2 inches in diameter. Chill both wrapped logs for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Unwrap dough logs (one at a time to keep cold and hard) and slice into disks about 1/3-inch thick. Place cookies on parchment or foil lined baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake until edges are brown (10-12 minutes). Let cool for a moment and then transfer to wire racks. Enjoy!
Teatulia Organic Teas are sourced directly from their own garden in Northern Bangladesh and other like-minded gardens, with no long-term warehouse storage and no waiting around to be put into the right blend by a third party. The results are exquisite, clean and smooth teas that support education, business and health initiatives and demonstrate a thorough commitment to sustainability. Started in 2000 to give back to the local community, the Teatulia Gardens were established as an enterprise that would give the people a living wage while protecting and strengthening the environment. The KS Foundation was launched to give back to the Bangladeshi community and has created revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programs for the people working in the garden and surrounding areas. All sales of Teatulia Organic Teas contribute to this mission, helping to better the lives of men, women and children in our community while rebuilding the local ecosystem. Teatulia Organic Teas is mindful of how its actions impact worldwide communities and actively supports ethical organizations like the Whole Planet Foundation, Rainforest Alliance, and B Corporation.
