Green Matcha Scones & Tea



Green Matcha Scones & Tea

Green as Hulk - My matcha scones won’t make you as strong, but you will get full. Matcha is a very popular ingredient these days and can be found in many recipes, but this is my personal scones recipe and I modified it for you using some green matcha. When I think of green matcha powder, I always think of tea and Japan first (sure...what else). Tea in turn led my thoughts to the UK and the classic teatime, with scones and cucumber sandwiches.

Scones lover

I first tried scones in Australia, when I worked for a hotel in Melbourne. With their British influences, scones were served every day for teatime or Sunday brunch. I wasn’t sure what to make of these baked pucks at first, until I got a taste with some clotted cream and jam...God, it was just too good. The moist yet slightly crumbly texture with the candied lemon, raisins and almonds just rang all the bells for me. I’ve been a scones lover ever since and always made a few extra when baking some at work, so I could get a bite.

The little difference in my scones

Well, aside from adding some matcha powder, using lime instead of lemon, and omitting the raisins, the recipe is almost identical, yet it makes that little difference. Some things are just good the way they are and can be varied by changing just a little something here or there. Since I’m Asian influenced with this recipe, I also didn’t want to serve an English tea, but something to go with the flavor. Simply my own matcha teatime and maybe yours soon?
