Hi HappyFlour,
You're always so creative in baking chiffon cakes. This recipe sounds interesting, I'll try it but I guess I'll leave out the tea leaf residue because my kids may not like tea leaf pieces, don't you think it's OK? Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for your compliment. :)
Don't worry about the tea leaf as you can't taste it at all. Your kids will chew on the cranberry than the tea leaf. It the tea leaf which give the chiffon cake the nice tea aroma.
