Scones and a warm cup of tea are a match made in heaven. We take this classic favorite teatime treat and put a twist on it by infusing it with notes of citrusy bergamot and bold black tea. We used our Organic Earl Grey tea in this recipe, but our Organic Decaffeinated Earl Grey tea will deliver on the flavor as well!

Ingredients:

Earl Grey Scones

  • 2 cups white whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 6 Choice Organics Organic Earl Grey tea bags (contents of tea
    bags emptied into bowl)
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup to ¾ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup to ¾ cup heavy cream

Lavender Lemon Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions:

Earl Grey Scones

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Place the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, Organic Earl Grey tea bag contents) in a food processor and pulse until blended.
  • Add the butter to the dry ingredients in the food processor and pulse until a coarse, pebble like texture has formed and then pour it into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the egg and cream and gently mix to create a slightly sticky dough. It may be necessary to add a little flour or a little cream to get the right consistency.
  • Add the blueberries and mix to combine.
  • Gently knead the dough a couple of times on a lightly floured surface.
  • Form the dough into a ¾ inch thick circle and cut into even wedges and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 3 inches apart.
  • Brush the top of the scones with cream and sprinkle each one lightly with sugar.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before topping with the Lavender Lemon Glaze.

Lavender Lemon Glaze

  • Bring the fresh squeezed lemon juice and dried lavender flowers to a simmer, and then turn off the heat completely. Allow this to steep for 5 minutes and come to a cooling temperature.
  • Strain out the lavender from the lemon juice.
  • Whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Pour the glaze over the top of the cooled scones.
