Matcha and Banana Scones

Matcha and Banana Scones

by Esther Kungu-Cooper July 04, 2020

I was inspired to try making scones again after enjoying some home-made scones and tea with my mum in her back garden.  They are really quick and easy to make and are the ideal accompaniment to tea.  This recipe is also sugar free so a good snack to have if you are avoiding excess sugar.  Serve with butter or clotted cream with a nice afternoon tea like Kenilworth Ceylon or the 1903 Blend.

Kinnettles Gold and National Tea Day

by Jon Cooper April 21, 2020

April 21st was National Tea Day.  It has been set up to celebrate and promote tea culture in the UK.  What better tea to celebrate than Kinnettles Gold grown right here in Scotland.

There are only 2kg manufactured each year, which accounts for the high price and it was the first commercially available black tea genuinely made in Scotland.
