For the Spice Tea - In a heat resistant cup, add 1/3 cup hot water. To the cup add a spice teabag. Let steep in hot water for 20 minutes.
For the Dry Ingredients - In a medium size mixing bowl, add flour, salt and baking soda. Whisk or stir together with a spoon. Set aside.
For the Batter - In a small microwave-safe bowl, add butter.
Heat the butter in the microwave for just 30 seconds (not any longer so that the butter doesn't get too hot for the batter).
Once out of the microwave, stir the butter until it's completely melted.
To a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter, granulated sugar and eggs. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat until smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes).
After the tea has steeped for 20 minutes, discard the tea bag and pour the tea in the large mixing bowl.
Beat the ingredients until combined.
To the large mixing bowl, add the flour a little at a time while mixing the batter on the lowest speed (this should help prevent the flour from flying out of the bowl).
Beat until combined (don't overmix). Set the batter aside for just a moment.
In a small bowl, add the peeled bananas.
With a fork, mash the bananas so that there are still some small pieces of bananas.
To the batter, add the mashed bananas.
With a mixer (set on low speed), mix just long enough to combine the bananas in the batter (don't overmix).
To the prepared pan, spoon in 1/2 of the batter.
With a soft spatula spread the batter evenly so that it's level in the pan. Set aside for a moment.
