  • Combine flour, white sugar, confectioners' sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut open tea bags and mix tea leaves evenly into the flour mixture.

  • Add butter, eggs, water, and vanilla extract to the flour mixture. Mix with an electric mixer or rubber spatula until dough comes together.

  • Roll dough into balls and shape into 2-inch cookies on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are light brown, about 12 minutes. Cool cookies for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

If using loose-leaf tea, you'll need 2 tablespoons.

For healthier cookies, use reduced-fat unsalted butter.
