If staying home has renewed your interest in baking and whipping up delicious treats each day of the home quarantine, it is an ideal time to take up different bakes. Tea-time munching is something all of us struggle with. What if we tell you there is an easy and lovely treat that you can bake in a few minutes? Tea muffins which are mildly sweet make the perfect snack. If you don’t want something too sweet in the evening, muffins make for a good choice. They can also be whipped up with healthier ingredients if you prefer.

To help you get going, Michelin-starred chef Vineet Bhatia shared the yummy-looking muffin recipe, made with Darjeeling tea leaves. Alternatively, one can also use regular tea leaves in the recipe.
