Earl Grey Tea, Blueberry and Lemon Cake

I like to try the funky recipes, or the ones which call for some kind of weird ingredient. This gorgeous cake isn't too funky, but it brought my attention due to flavors combination. I've tried various Earl Grey tea cake recipes, but non of them had such a deep Earl Grey flavor. Here you mix in  freshly brewed tea and the tea leaves into the cake batter. Tadaaa! Now you know the secret.

Personally I would prefer orange zest instead of lemon, and next time I will definitely choose smaller loaf pan, I would like the cake to be little bit taller, but over all this cake ROCKS! I will definitely make it again (with my tiny personal changes).

Choose good quality lemons and flavorful tea for this recipe, and make sure your brewed tea "essence" is very strong. You can use frozen blueberries if you can't find the fresh ones.
