Infusing Butters for Shortbreads

Infusing butters, originally uploaded by Ayala Moriel.

I'm infusing butters for shortbread cookies - four flavours. Can you guess what these are going to be?

You have till 4pm to figure it out - and get a chance to win a Guilt scented chocolate bar (though I'd much rather to be able to ship you some cookies, it is nearly impossible to do so without breaking them en-route).

::smacks forehead:: But of course! Excellent idea. Must try.

Now, because I can't see the picture while commenting, I'm going to go back and review the batches for guessing...

Saffron | Chive | Lavender | Orange Peel

(Okay, chive seems unlikely, but that was my first thought...being honest...)

Fun! My best guesses:
top left: saffron
top right: umeboshi
bottom left: lapsong souchong (or another black tea)
bottom right: osmanthus

Looks interesting and delicious.
1.Definatly saffron
2.Can not tell if it is possibly cocao or black cardamom
3.Then Lychee tea or pipalli, I would think Lychee might be a better taste for cookies.
4.Lastly osmanthus

Thanks for giving me some new ideas for butters and cookies. Angie
