Recipe: Blueberry & Black Tea Cake

Winter is well and truly upon us! We don't know about you, but there's nothing better than spending the weekend in the kitchen baking up a storm when it's cold out! This blueberry and black tea cake is one recipe you're going to want to add to  your 'must-make' list. It stars the Swirlit Blueberry & Black Tea which you'll find in the June GoodnessMe Box. It's packed full of powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties thanks to the polyphenols found in blueberry extract and is also free from refined sugar (aka better for your teeth). Fun fact: It was developed by a dentist so it gets the tick of approval when it comes to oral health!
