This recipe is one of the best things we have tried at Twinings HQ, this literally is one to stop everything you’re doing to enjoy every single taste.

It is very hard to describe such a delicious flavour without showing so all we can do is recommend that you make this stunning Self Saucing Bollywood Chai Pear Pudding to find out for yourself!
