Ingredients (For the Crust):

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon chai spice mix (ground cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves)

Ingredients (For the Cheesecake Filling):

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 cup strong brewed Rejuvenate black tea blend (cooled)

  • Begin by creating a flavourful crust. Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, brown sugar, and chai spice mix in a bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner, setting the stage for the decadent layers to come.

  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and continue beating until well combined. Add eggs one at a time, incorporating each thoroughly. Stir in sour cream, brewed Rejuvenate tea, vanilla extract, and chai spice mix until the batter is smooth and rich.

  • Pour the cheesecake batter over the prepared crust in each cupcake liner. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 325°F (163°C) until the edges are set, and the centers maintain a delightful jiggle.

  • Allow the mini cheesecakes to cool in the muffin tin for about 15 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Chill the mini cheesecakes in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
