This "Tea Bread" is near and dear to my taste buds. It's a harmonious partner to Darjeeling and, to top it off, it has one of those slightly unexpected ingredients that sounds odd, but once you taste it you will smack your forehead and exclaim, "Why have I not been doing this my whole life!"
Prepare yourself for the epiphany of......... Lemon Thyme Bread.
