Chai Scones

Chai Spiced Scones Recipe

Tea and scones are the perfect combination for an afternoon tea. No one can resist the delicious pairing. We’ve infused our scones with typical Indian chai flavours for a unique twist on this sweet treat.

Prep-time 20 mins | Bake time 15 mins | Makes 5


5 Chai tea bags
100ml milk, plus extra to glaze
200g self raising flour, plus extra to dust
50g butter, cut into cubes
½ tsp bicarb
3 tbsp caster sugar


  • Place the milk and tea bags into a small pan and heat until the milk just starts to bubble. Take off the heat and leave to cool and infuse. Discard the tea bags. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  • In a large bowl rub the butter and flour together until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the bicarb and the sugar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the cooled milk. Combine until the mixture forms a soft dough. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 2cm deep. Cut out around 5 scones using a medium round cutter. Place onto a lined baking tray.
  • Brush the scones with a little milk and bake for around 15min, or until they have turned a deep golden brown. Serve warm with cream and jam.
