Matcha Scones & Tea

Matcha Scones – Green As Hulk

My matcha scones will not make you as strong yet they will definitely satisfy. Matcha is a very popular ingredient these days and can be found in thousands of recipes but this is mine and I created it for you. If I think of this green powder, I always think of tea first (sure I do…what else it was meant to be in the first place). Tea on the other hand led my thoughts to Britain and the classic tea time, this is how it came to life.

Scones Lover

I first tasted scones in Australia when I was working for a Melbourne Hotel Company. With their British influences, the scones were served every day for tea time or the Sunday brunch. I first was not to sure what to think of these baked pucks 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, the raisins and almonds were simply ringing all my bells. Ever since, I am a fan and was always doing a few extra when baking them at work, so I was sure to get a good bite too.

The Difference

Well, besides adding some matcha powder, using lime instead of lemon and skipping the raisins, the recipe is the same. Some things are just good as they are and are varied by adding a tiny bit here and there. Also, being Asian influenced with this recipe, I did not want to serve an English tea rather than something matching the aromatic point. All in all a very nice treat to fall in love with…
