MarketSpice Tea flavored French Macarons

macaron #7, #11 – I adjusted this basic recipe slightly, and my macarons were not as pretty as I had hoped.  I should have given the batter one or two more turns. However, the oils from the tea gave these macarons a great flavor.  And, experience is the best teacher!

I added two bags of Seattle’s Pike Place Market – MarketSpice’s signature tea, Cinnamon-Orange to the macaron batter.
