Lemon Ginger Blueberry Tea Scones
It’s finally starting to feel like spring and I couldn’t be more happy. It feels great to wear shorts, eat as many fresh berries as I want, and just sit outside in the sun.
But despite the gorgeous weather I’ve been enjoying lately, some things never go out of season. A steaming cup of tea is one of them.
This month’s Recipe ReDux theme was all about tea, and I, being a serious tea girl, was super excited. For a while, I was undecided about what to make. I had so many idea bouncing back and forth in my head… but then it hit me.
I was totally making scones!
I’ve been wanting to make a hearty batch of scones for some time now, but they always get pushed aside for more chocolatey “dessert-like” recipes. I couldn’t let that happen again, so off to scone baking I went.
Now, not only do these scones go with tea, they also incorporate tea right into the recipe. How cool is that? If you wanted to, you could literally eat tea with a cup of tea! It’s a trick I discovered a while ago and have used in several recipes like my Apple Cinnamon Bread and Blueberry Tea Oatmeal. What you do it add the contents of a caffeine free tea bag right in with the dry ingredients. It adds a whole new layer of flavor and worked wonderfully in these scones.
And if you don’t believe me, just bake up some for yourself!
