TeaVivre. They have many more options than those that I tried, including a selection of organic teas, as well as some exquisite tea ware, both traditional and modern. My favorites are the double-walled glass tea cups!
Lavender-scented Scottish Shortbread
Leave out the lavender if you want the real, traditional shortbread
1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender buds
16 tablespoons unsalted butter, best quality available
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
Preheat the oven to 275°F.
Put the lavender buds in a spice grinder and grind to a fine powder; there will still be bits and pieces of the husks. Empty the lavender into a very fine-mesh sieve and shake until all the fine powder has come through. You will have between 1 and 1 1/2 teaspoons lavender powder.
In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add the flour and lavender powder and mix on low speed until it comes together as a dough.
Turn the dough out into a 10-inch pie plate and pat the dough evenly to fill the plate. Using a fork - or a cake breaker, as I did - divide the shortbread dough into sections - you can do a checkerboard, or wedge shapes as you see here. I then used a fork to make a very simple thistle pattern.
Bake the shortbread for 1hour 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the shortbread from the oven; turn off the oven, and close the oven door.
While it is still soft enough to cut, slice the shortbread into pieces along your dotted lines, Place the shortbread (still in its baking pan) back into the oven, and leave it there until the oven and shortbread are cool.
Remove from the pan and place in an airtight container. Will keep for several days.
