Pistachio-Chai Muffins

This is a good recipe from Cooking Light, and it puts forth the neat idea of using chai tea in something baked. (This sweet tea tart has also been on my mind lately. Let's just start putting tea in everything!)

Make these pistachio-chai muffins on impulse (like us) on a weekday morning for a top-notch distraction. Obviously, baking at 6:30 a.m. is so much more productive and rewarding than, say, finally ironing clothes, getting a jumpstart on to-do's, or otherwise sensibly and logically preparing for a crazy-busy day. Or you could just try them this weekend for a way less hectic experience.

We're wondering...do you have an interesting go-to muffin recipe to recommend? Or a surprising use for tea in a recipe?

These look tasty I may have to give them a try. I often make banana muffins when they are going brown or bran muffins.
My husband is planning to make tea icecream soon...will let you know how it goes!
Have you ever tried making savory icecream?

Wendy made sweet corn ice cream for us - yum! Tea sounds really good, too.

I ran across this Mango Tea Bread after reading your post: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2982
But, I don't see any tea in the recipe. Hmmm...
