  1. Heat oven to 170°C/150°C fan/Gas mark 3
  2. Grease and line a 20 cm square tin with greaseproof.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in sifted flours and tea until just coming together. Pour into tin and press down until smooth.
  4. Prick all over with a fork, chill for 30 mins, score into 16 fingers with knife and then sprinkle with flowers and press in.
  5. Bake for 45-55 mins until just beginning to golden and firm. When removed from oven, go over scored lines with knife again to cut into 16 fingers. Sprinkle with remaining caster sugar.
