This Amish Friendship Bread variation offers an intense flavor boost from the tea, which gets added directly into the recipe. Remove the loose tea from the tea bags and mix with the sugar, then add it to the recipe.
You can use our Brown Sugar Icing, Vanilla Glaze or Orange Glaze to top the bread when warm. If using the Brown Sugar Icing, steep an extra orange-cinnamon tea bag in the milk for 15 minutes (you can warm the milk first or just bring it to room temperature) before making the icing.
