As mentioned in this month’s Daring Baker’s post, I made Green Tea scones.
Green tea scones?! Whaatt ?
Anyway this was the perfect excuse to finally get on with it as this recipe has been on my mind for months. My sheer laziness is the reason why I never got around to actually baking it!
I also have to be honest, as the end product initially got some strange reactions with Gavin even proclaiming that it looked mouldy. You may ask, why wreak a perfectly delicious scone. My answer would be because I have an insatiable addiction to green tea. Also in my defense, green tea seems to be everywhere these days, in cakes, mousses, ice-creams; so why not incorporate it into a traditionally British scone and see what happens.
Once again, my green tea addiction has been justified. These scone came out perfectly delicious, soft and light. The crumb texture was pretty much spot on and the earthy flavor of green tea powder was subtle but definitely distinctive. It’s not a sweet scone but pairs well with citrus jams or curds as well as sinful yet luscious clotted cream.
So go on, give this fusion scone a try today and be blown away.
