  2. Cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry blender and continue to mix until the dough resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a labeled measuring cup, combine the vinegar and egg yolk.
  4. Slowly add the ice cold rooibos tea into the cup, until total ingredients equal 1/3 of a cup.
  5. Sprinkle the liquid mixture over the dry mixture, and stir briskly with a fork until the pastry holds together.
  6. Form the pastry into a ball.
  7. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
