Steps

  1. Place an oven rack in the center. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a loaf pan, spraying with non-stick spray or greasing with butter. Then dust with flour.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the milk. Heat until hot but not boiling. Turn off the heat and add the Keemun, Assam, Lapsang Souchong, Pu’erh, Bergamot & Lemon Peel and Ceylon Teas. Stir to combine. Cover and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Strain and set aside the steeped milk until ready to use.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until incorporated. Add the steeped milk, vanilla extract, bananas, and sour cream. Mix to combine. In 2 batches, add the dry ingredients, beating until incorporated. Do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake on the center rack for 1 hour, 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack for 20 minutes before turning out the loaf to cool completely.
