Chai Tea Bag Cookies with Free Printable is a paid collaboration with Bostik. Everyone that knows me will testify to the fact that I love tea. So when I was asked to come up with a British craft I thought tea and why not combine my love of tea, crafting and cooking and bring you chai tea bag cookies with a free printable tag.
I love nothing more than afternoon tea and these Chai shortbread cookies are the perfect accompaniment.

How to Make Chai Tea Bag Cookies
Print off your tea bag tags and cut them to size. (I used my Cricut Maker), but you can just use a printer and scissors.
I also added some blank ones so you could add your own message.
Tie the string through the cookie and then secure the other end with a stapler on the back of the tag.
Then using blu stick to glue the tags together. I love how you can see exactly where you have placed the glue, but don’t worry it dries clear.
These are so cute and perfect to serve at a tea party.
- 125 grams butter
- 50 grams caster sugar
- 175 grams plain flour
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp chai tea
Preheat oven 180’C/Gas mark 4.
Rub butter, caster sugar and flour together in a big bowl until it looks like breadcrumbs, I used to call this tickling with the boys. Now we just add it all to the food processor and pulse it.
Heat a small cup of milk and add the chai and allow to steep.
Add a tablespoon of milk to your bread crumbs and knead for a minute or two until it forms a smooth ball of dough. Cover with clingfilm and pop in the fridge for half an hour.
Turn onto a floured surface and roll out the dough until it’s 1cm thick.
Cut out biscuit shapes using your template and put a hole in for the string.
Reshape the scraps and cut more shapes.
Place the biscuits on a baking tray and prick with a fork.
Bake for 15 minutes before placing on to a wire rack to cool.
