Glazed Lemon Tea Scones

Cream scones flavored with lemon zest and tea, then garnished with a lemon drizzle.



Lemon drizzle::


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda. Cut butter into cubes and using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers, incorporated the butter until it’s the size of small peas.
  3. Wet the tea bag (use a second for a more pronounced tea flavor). Squeeze the tea bag into the buttermilk, being careful not to break the bag.
  4. Stir the tea infused buttermilk, vanilla and lemon zest into the flour mixture until a dough forms. You do not want to over-work the dough.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, pat or gently roll the dough into an 8-inch circle and place onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Cut the round into 8 wedges and separate them slightly. Sprinkle with sugar if desired.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool. To make drizzle, place the powdered sugar into a medium bowl. Whisk in the melted butter and milk. Drizzle over cooled scones. Sprinkle with lemon zest if desired.


Scones are best eaten on the day they’re made.
