Ingredients
  

Blueberry Earl Grey Scones

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter grated on a cheese grater
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 8 bags Earl Grey Tea Twinnings
  • cup fresh blueberries

Earl Grey Glaze

  • cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 bags Earl Grey Tea
  • 2+ cups powdered sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line round baking dish with parchment paper. In a coffee grinder, grind 2 bags of Eaerl Grey tea until powdered.
  • Slighly warm buttermilk and place 6 tea bags into steep at least 3 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, powdered tea, and salt.
  • Add the butter and toss with the flour. I found using my hands worked best.
  • Add egg, infused buttermilk and vanilla. Mix until blended. DO NOT OVERMIX.
  • Fold in blueberries.
  • Remove dough with floured hands and place in baking round. Pat down slightly into the edge of the dish, evenly. Brush with additional buttermilk.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes. Let the scones cool to room temperature and slice into 8 pieces. Separate and drizzle with Earl Grey Glaze.
  • Serve warm with butter, double cream or clotted cream and my favorite homemade lemon curd!

Earl Grey Glaze

  • Place milk and butter in a small saucepan and set over medium heat.
  • Cook until the milk is steaming, but not boiling. Remove from heat and place 4 Earl Grey tea bags into the milk. Cover and let them steep 5 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags, making sure to squeeze all the extra tea from the bags. Discard the tea bags.
  • Stir in the powdered sugar one cup at a time, until the consistency you wish. I prefer a thicker glaze, so I added about 3 cups of powdered sugar to get to where I wanted it.
  • Drizzle over each scone. Serve remaining glaze with your scones if you wish.
