  • waffle maker/waffle iron


  • 1 C whole milk
  • 2 bags Earl Grey tea or 2 tablespoon loose leaf tea
  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon potato starch or cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or neutral vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon culinary bergamot oil or orange zest
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar


  • fresh berries
  • maple syrup
  • whipped cream


  • In a heat-safe mug, warm the milk and add in the Earl Grey tea bags/tea leaves. Leave to steep for about 5 minutes and then let cool to room temperature.
  • Strain out the tea leaves/tea bags from the milk tea. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, potato starch, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine eggs, butter, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and give it a whisk.
  • Pour the Earl Grey milk tea into the egg mixture while whisking. (Note: If you like the flecks of Earl Grey tea in the waffles, you can add the finely ground tea to the batter).
  • Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix with a spatula until just combined (with a few lumps).
  • Heat waffle maker/waffle iron to medium-high heat.
  • Add about ¼ C batter to each well and cook for about 5 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
  • Serve the waffles with fresh mixed berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
  • You can also serve them with maple syrup, honey, butter, or powdered sugar.
