Chai Latte Bundt Cake

My new favorite bundt cake is inspired by the flavors of Chai tea. It is mildly spiced and slightly sweet, warm comforting flavors, this bundt cake is perfect for any occasion. Chai tea offers a variety of health benefits, is heart healthy, reducing blood sugar levels, aiding in digestion, and boosting the immune system.
