The sun is shining. It's summer time. So it's outdoor tea party time!
I love the idea of a tea party. My friends and I throw little ones all the time.There's just something so cute and elegant about them. If you have never hosted one before, I really think you should!
These earl grey tea madeleines are perfectly dense and sweet. They go perfectly with a cup of earl grey tea and milk.

Earl Grey Tea Madeleines

2 tbsp earl grey tea leaves  (from about 2 or 3 bags)
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 lemon juiced
1 zest of lemon
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp lavender extract

1. Place tea leaves in warm melted coconut oil and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes. Using a sieve, drain the butter into a bowl. You can reserve a tablespoon or so of the tea leaves to put in your madeleines of the leaves are small.
2. Preheat oven to 400F and lightly oil a madeleine pan
3. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick. This will take about 4 minutes
4. Add extracts, lemon juice, and lemon zest and beat until combined
5. Sift in flour and baking powder together into your large bowl and gently fold in
6. Fold in coconut oil mixture
7. Drop batter into your madeleine pan. Batter will spread when baking so there's no need to spread
8. Bake for 10 minutes until golden and a tooth pick comes out clean
