National Brownie Day is December 8. It is a delicious holiday to celebrate the rich, chocolatey goodness of brownies. If you'd like to combine the flavors of brownies with tea, you can make tea-infused brownies.

Here's a simple recipe for Tea-Infused Brownies:


  • 2 tea bags (choose a flavor you like, like Fog Horn Grey, Inland Iced Chai, or Cape Lookout Mocha)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease an 8x8-inch (20x20 cm) baking pan.

  2. Brew a strong cup of tea using 1/2 cup of hot water and the tea bags. Let it steep for about 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature.

  3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once it's melted, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar and the brewed and cooled tea. Mix well until the sugar dissolves.

  5. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract into the tea-sugar mixture.

  6. In another bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour, and salt.

  7. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.

  8. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter).

  10. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  11. Once the brownies are fully cooled, cut them into squares and enjoy!

These tea-infused brownies have a unique, subtle tea flavor that pairs nicely with the rich chocolate. You can use your favorite tea to customize the flavor to your liking. Happy National Brownie Day!
