Early Grey Stash Tea is one of their best sellers and an all-time favorite by millions. Earl Grey is black tea scented with bergamot, an oil extracted from pear-shaped Mediterranean citrus about the size of an orange. It has a distinctive flavor and a lightly fragrant aroma which makes it the perfect ingredient for these scones.

If you never made a scone before, you must try these. If you don’t know what a scone is, they are a British baked good, usually made of flour, wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash and topped with a lightly sweetened glaze. You can see the bit of Earl Grey goodness peeking through each scone.

These Earl Grey Raisin Scones with Vanilla Glaze are so incredibly delicious, we couldn’t wait to eat one. They are best served warm and if you really want a decadent comfort food treat, you can top them with butter too!

You can see the bits of Earl Grey Tea in the mix below. Don’t over mix the ingredients just give them a few good pulses in your processor.

Be sure to cut your delicious scone dough into perfect little squares.

Always remember to line your baking pan with parchment paper. It’s super important!

Then carefully remove the squares and place on a cookie sheet for baking.

Don’t forget the yummy egg wash too which adds to the overall crispy outer layers.

All prepped up and ready to go into the oven at 420 degrees for about 12 minutes.

I love having a scone with one of my favorite Stash teas, Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea. This tea blends thirst-quenching pomegranate with the zing of natural raspberry flavor, green tea, and matcha.

When you first bite into these Earl Grey Raisin Scones with Vanilla Glaze, your eyes will roll back in your head and your mouth will tingle with every taste bud coming alive with flavor – very dramatic you say? Well, maybe so but that statement is based in truth! Maybe I’m a scone fanatic or maybe I just love baking and eating them. They truly are the most delicious comfort food I bake.

The vanilla glaze tops these dreamy clouds of goodness off perfectly, and the pop of raisins stays juicy and warm with every bite!

Let me know if you have any questions about the process, and most of all, enjoy!

Recipe details

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Earl Grey loose tea (remove from teabag or use loose)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons cubed cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large egg
  • Vanilla Glaze
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or you can use one vanilla bean (scrap the insides)

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Spray an 8-inch round cake pan with baking spray with flour.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I traced the outside of a spring-form pan and then cut a circle so the parchment paper fits perfectly.
In the work bowl of a food processor, place flour, sugar, baking powder, tea, and salt; pulse until combined. Add cold butter, and pulse until mixture start to get crumbly.
Transfer the dough to a large bowl, and fold in raisins and 1 cup cream, stirring until combined.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly, just until dough comes together.
Press dough into prepared cake pan. Then, using a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut into 8 wedges.
Transfer wedges to prepared (spray with Pam) baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg and remaining 1 teaspoon cream.
Brush tops of scones with egg wash, and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. (Make sure you check your scones at the 12 minute mark. If they are golden brown, they are done)
For vanilla glaze: In a small saucepan, bring sugar, ¼ cup water, and vanilla.
For vanilla bean glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones.

    Very interesting recipe ,I wasn’t aware that we can eat tea leaves. Is it necessary to grind the tea to a powder before ?

      For this recipe, I didn't need to grind the leaves as they were already prepared that way but yes, I would imagine that's correct. I love these scones. They are my all-time favs!
