  1. Yummy! I tried this at weekend, swapping the Earl Grey for Masala chai tea and they were so tasty! Thanks for the recipe, Caroline!

  2. Mmm, that sounds like a great variation!

  3. What a great idea! I love Earl grey. :)

  4. Yuuum I made these today for afternoon tea, but also used chai instead as I don't have any earl grey left! So good. Almost any type of tea would be fabulous. And I love your teacup/saucer sets!
