Green Tea Scones, Celebrating Hot Tea Month

I have talked about my love for caffeinated beverages frequently on this space. They get me through my very early mornings, late nights, and days that end in the letter y. True story. Where you may think that my love for warm drinks ends with coffee, you couldn’t be any further from the truth. I happen to be a huge fan of hot tea. There is just something so cozy and inviting about a cup of tea. Anytime I go to fix myself a cup of tea I almost always find Russ requesting one too. Hot tea is just one of those things that brings people together.

January also happens to be Hot Tea Month! Today we are going to celebrate with Bigelow and make a tea inspired recipe!

Since the winter season began we have been drinking tea almost every single night. A few days ago I noticed we were almost all out of tea. The girls and I decided to bundle up and make a special trip to Walmart to replenish our stash. When I buy tea, I reach for Bigelow. Bigelow is more than just tea. They are family, 3 generations, Foil packaging, freshness, US manufacturing, quality tea & ingredients.

If I drink Bigelow tea, I tea proudly.

There are so many choices like Green Tea, Constant Comment, Vanilla Chai, Peppermint, and more. I always come home with several boxes that I just couldn’t pass up. I love to find something for everyone and something for every occasion. We love keeping a wide variety of options on hand.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy my morning cup of tea is with scones. I LOVE scones. I was probably 30 the very first time I made them and since that fateful day, I have made hundreds more. The recipe I want to share with you today is inspired by Bigelow Green Tea.

Scones
  1. 2 cups flour (I use unbleached)
  2. 2 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  6. 1 egg, separated
  7. 1/2 cup milk
  8. 4 Bigelow Green Tea bags
  9. 3 T honey
  10. 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  11. Sugar for sprinkling
Glaze
  1. 1 Cup powder sugar
  2. 1-3 tsp milk
  3. 1/2 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. 2. Warm milk up in the microwave (about 30-45 seconds) and steep 4 tea bags in it for about 5 minutes
  3. 3. Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
  4. 4. Separate the egg white and yolk set the egg white aside.
  5. 5. In separate bowl mix the egg yolk, honey and 1/3 a cup of the green tea milk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, slowly adding in the chips as it mixes.
  6. 6. Form dough into a ball on a lightly floured surface. Roll out or pat until 1/2″ in thickness and 8″ in diameter. Cut into 8 equally sized pieces.
  7. 7. Transfer to greased or lined baking sheet. Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the top of the scones. Lightly sprinkle sugar over the egg white topped scones.
  8. 7. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes
  9. 8. Mix together powdered milk vanilla and sugar until a glaze forms. If you wish, you can use the remaining green tea milk in the glaze. Drizzle over scones after they bake.
Notes
  1. The glaze recipe makes a lot. If you go easy on the glaze feel free to half the recipe.

They are SO yummy! The white chocolate chips add just the right amount of sweetness to these scones. The girls were huge fans too. Maybe I am raising up the next generation of tea drinkers!

    Yum! You are always making such yummy goodies. I never think to make scones. i’ll have to fix that.

    • Oh man there are SO many kinds of scones friend. I have yet to find one I didn’t like.

  • I love Tea =) And I have never made scones, and I would bet these ones are delish!

    • Tea is so good and scones, oh my goodness they are SO yummy and there are so many kinds. I love them all.

  • I’m such a tea girl. That recipe looks so unique and sooo delicious!

    • I can totally see you being a tea girl :). Thank you, they are SO good.

  • Meghan Flinn

    I definitely prefer tea over coffee! I really should venture out and try more varieties! I don’t think I’ve ever tried green tea even! What kind of flavor does it add to scones? Cause I really do love me some scones!

    • I knew you didn’t love coffee so I hoped that you did love tea. Can’t imagine not having something warm to drink on a cool day.

  • Those scones look so yummy. I am much more of a coffee girl than tea. I try to get into it (as is evident by the variety of tea I have in my cupboard) but just can’t get into it….

    • Do you sweeten it? I love tea so much more with honey. I also LOVE a little bit of half and half in my black tea. Just a smidge goes a long way.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    I always buy Bigelow’s tea too but don’t drink it as much as I would like. I am always going for the coffee! Might need to switch it up! And those scones, yuuuuuuuuum!!

    • I tend to drink coffee in the morning and tea in the evening or afternoon. Scones are my love language.

  • I never thought that scones could be green tea flavored! I’ll have to make some, simply for the wee bit of extra caffeine I’ll get 😉

  • I like tea but I rarely drink it!

    • Well you should fix that, especially in January :).

  • Those scones look so good – I love scones and make them pretty frequently for our breakfasts. I’ll try these!! Love your tea cup too, so pretty!!

    Whitney @ Come Home For Comfort

    • Ooohhhh! You’ll have to share your favorite recipes friend. I am ALWAYS looking for a new one to try. Thank you! Gotta love that Pioneer Woman.

  • I drink hot tea every single morning and I had no idea that this month was hot tea month! Those scones look absolutely amazing and green tea is my favorite so I MUST try these!

    • Really? That is so much fun! I tend to be a coffee in the a.m tea in the p.m. kind of gal myself. Green tea is a favorite of mine. That and English Breakfast with a splash of half and half.

  • I am a coffee girl but I do make hot green tea when I feel run down. Those scones look divine!

    • YES! I live off of hot tea when I am feeling run down too. Something about it always makes me feel better.

  • These sound delish! Perfect for breakfast!

  • I love scones, but have never made one before. Sad, right? These look so yummy! I need to try to make some now for sure 🙂

    • WHAT?! Yes, you totally need to fix that pronto!

  • Those scones look amazing! I need to try some hot tea. I don’t drink much tea unless it’s sweet iced tea!

    • Which is pretty much the best tea ever, so good choice there!
