This cake is great! I made changes ONLY because I didn't have plain black tea on hand, and this recipe is very much like a chai-spiced quick bread that I make (and love) but that my husband isn't wild about. So instead of the black tea, I used pumpkin spice tea that I had, and replaced the cardamom with ginger to make it more pumpkin-y and less chai-y. Now instead of calling it chai-spiced tea cake, I call it autumn-spiced tea cake. However, I WILL eventually be making it as the directions state - probably when I'm baking for more than just my husband and myself!
