 1 tsp. baking powder
 ¼ tsp. salt
 1 cup of granulated sugar
 2 tsp. grated orange zest from 1 orange

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, tea, baking powder and salt.


In a large bowl, beat the butter, and sugar with electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy about 5 minutes.


Add orange zest, add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined. Add in the flour mixture on and beat on low, until just combined. Then add milk and beat. Add the chocolate and fold it in with a spatula.


Transfer batter to prepared cake pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack completely. Then tip cake out to cool more.


To finish the frosting, add the remaining ¼ cup of cream, mascarpone cheese and confectioner’s sugar to the tea cream. With an electric mixer on medium, beat the cream mixture until medium-stiff peaks form, 2-3 minutes.
