Herby Scone and Matcha Scone with meaty garlic gravy
finished off with Breakfast Blend tea
The Third Sunday of Advent 🕯🕯🕯
After pantry reorganization, a light high tea. Herb & matcha scone with gravy instead of steak and kidney pie. Butter milk based scone and butter based scone respectively.
Herby scone was made with fresh CHIVES minced, ground parsley, dried thyme, TARRAGON, basil, a dash of rosemary water and little amaranth flour.
Matcha scone was made with a hint of almond flour, ROSE WATER and white cheese.
A pairing of white sausage gravy and scone/biscuits would be the most popular idea for savory goodness. At times, my kind of version is with the most basic brown gravy though. Aside from pepper, well cooked garlic is one of nice options, the featured sweetness of garlic does yield a superb meal. Overall, it really goes well with these scones. You could choose lamb over beef.
A good slice of stollen and mint tea with lemon juice worked so nicely even though not shown in pictures. Perfectly terrific layering as stollen becomes flavorful. I posted why stollen could be the very nice way to count up towards the days before Christmas on my page. If needed, see my feed of the second Sunday of Advent.
Generally, verveine menthe(verbena mint) tea will be a great idea for stollen. Besides with preserved lemon/lemon juice, it would be a nice idea to reduce winter sickness. A pairing of lemon and verbena is great for summer, absolutely right for winter too. Just to note, really goes well with mince pies and galette des rois(a.k.a. Epiphany pie). You could just give it a go.
And then, finished off with Breakfast Blend tea. Normally, 99% chocolate chips would be the very best idea to figure out the perfect aftertaste for me. This tea made me go still though. Such a refreshing wake up call that no need to be searching some way to fill it in. I really didn’t have a choice both for answer and question, not now, not then. It would work for you too.
I often drink that tea to look after myself. That’s from my grandma.
