Hi, may I know what is tea dust? Is it the tea leaves inside the tea bag?

Thanks in advance,

Jane…yes is the mixture in the teabag :D

Thanks for reply, so I just cut open the tea bags and use the leaves inside? I am using loose tea leaves and it's actually quite coarse and big, not fine and powdery type, it will affect the texture of the cake?

Thank you for your guidance. :)

Jane....yes cut up the bags and use the mixture inside. Blend the leaves till fine if they are too coarse if not it will affect the texture of the cake.
