1½ cups flour
2 tbsp camomile tea
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
125 g unsalted butter, softened

Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Lavender, to decorate

1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Combine flour, tea, bicarb, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Grind any large pieces of tea between your fingers.
3. In a separate bowl, beat the butter until light. Add the honey and continue to beat until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, lemon zest and 1 tbsp lemon juice.
4. Slowly add dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.
5. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface to 3 mm thick. Use a round cutter to cut out biscuits. Arrange them on the baking tray, about 2 cm apart.
