Tea Recipe: Chocolate Chai Cupcakes with Spiced Buttercream

We’ve been doing a lot of catering lately. While I’ll never get bored serving tea, sometimes I want to create more interesting experiments.  So recently we have been adding a new realm of offerings to our catering list – tea goodies.

For this recipe we have collaborated with our good friend Sally from Sweet Sally’s,  and devised some tea-infused treats that aren’t just good, they’re downright great!

One of my favorite delights that came out from this amazing partnership is the Chocolate Chai Cupcakes – the perfect blend of sweet, spice and, of course, tea!

I loved them so much, in fact, that I couldn’t wait to give you the recipe!

Here it is:
