Despite being a bit tough to get your hands on if you don't know exactly where they're sold, they make an excellent part of a cupcake when ground into a fine dust. That lovely aroma and childhood nostalgia pairs perfectly with the unique blend of Earl Grey, but you can use any tea you like.

These cupcakes are something I made for the school fayre. They sold out pretty fast, I'm sure due to their white chocolate dribbleness. The other cakes I made did not sell out fast.
