3 cups flour (cake flour, 00 flour, AP flour)
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Combine all dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

3 cups milk
1 tbsp Black or Oolong tea (substitute white tea to make a lighter colored batter)
¼ cup melted butter
6 eggs separated
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In a medium sauce pot heat milk to the proper temperature for the tea being used, steep for 3-5 minutes. Melt ¼ cup of butter in the microwave then combine it and the vanilla with the milk. Using an electric mixer, blend the egg yolks and sugar together until they become a lighter color of yellow.

On low speed slowly pour the tea milk into the egg yolks. One everything is combined; on low speed slowly add in your dry mixture until smooth. With an electric mixer on high beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Fold in the egg whites to the rest of your batter. This will look like a lot of batter but it does not spread out as some can so you will need to fill the waffle maker almost to the edge for each waffle.

This recipe makes 6-8 waffles.
