Chai Zucchini Cake

So, as per usual, I am feverishly working zucchini into every recipe I possibly can and then some. Savory to sweet, I'm making it all. It must have been kismet because a packet of instant chai and a sack of grape seed + wheat flour from this month's Degustabox put me on the path to devising a deliciously moist zucchini cake.
