 1 tsp Ground Ginger 
 1 tsp Cinnamon 
 ¼tsp Ground Black Pepper

• Preheat the oven to 170C (fan assisted) / 190C / Gas Mark 5.

• To make the spiced Chai sugar, remove the leaves from 2 tea India Masala Chai Tea bags and place in a food processor, add the demerara sugar and blitz to combine. Place in a bowl and set to one side.

• To make the shortbread, cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl.
