Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 3-litre capacity bundt pan.

Place the Ceylon Chai tea leaves/bags in the milk and leave to infuse overnight(ideally) or for 2 hours.

Strain the tea leaves/bags and pour Ceylon Chai into a large bowl with all the other ingredients and whisk to blend.

Pour into the greased bundt tin and bake for 25-30 minutes, turn the tin around and bake until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the pan for a few minutes and turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Pairs well with a milky strong Ceylon Chai or Ceylon Black. Goes well with Assam or a Kenyan black tea.
