Banana Chocolate Shanghai Cha Tea Muffin Recipe

January 09, 2015


Sometimes when the weather starts to drop and so does my motivation to work, all I can think of doing at the time is baking. Of course, when I get creative in the kitchen I need to find a way to make tea involved. You may remember when I reviewed a tea from Shanghai Cha last year. Their Anji Mountain White tea quickly became a 2014 favourite and I was excited when they shared a recipe with me that featured the tea.
