Taster’s Review:

I love freshly baked scones, and because of that I’ve tried a LOT of scone mixes over the years.  But, I can honestly say that I’ve not tried one as delicious as this!

These scones are amazing!

They are simple enough to prepare – just measure out the right amount of mix (two batches can be made from 1 package), and add butter, cream, egg and vanilla.  This results in a dense moist scone that is flaky and tender and delicious.  The best way I can think of to describe these scones is that if my beloved gramma made her pie crust into scones – this is what they would taste like!

Not only are these scones delicious, but they are probably the most economical scones mix I’ve found in a long time!   Each package makes 2 batches of 10 – 12 scones (depending upon how large you make your scones) and costs just $5.75 – which is what I’ve found to be about the average cost of a typical ONE batch scone mix.  In fact, I’ve found (and paid for!) scone mixes that cost even more for jut one batch.  This package gives you double the product for just about the same price.

Generally, I like my scones with clotted cream (or, in a pinch, some butter will do), however, the butter added during preparations give these tea-time treats a very buttery-rich flavor; I don’t think they need more!  But some lemon curd (or fruit spread) would be nice.  (Heavenly Tea Gatherings also offers a delicious lemon curd that I shall be reviewing very soon!)

Serve these scones at your next tea party and your guests will be begging you for the recipe!  Nobody has to know that it came from a mix!  YUMMY!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Original Matcha Latte from Matcha Mountains

Where to Buy:  Where Matcha Mountains Products Are Sold.

Product Description:

Our original mix is ideal for getting you going in the morning or as an afternoon “pick me up”. Our original mix is for people who like the taste of green tea, although a few drops of vanilla extract or syrup is great. Simply mix with hot water and add your favourite frothed milk product. This product has the highest portion of matcha per serving and has a thick creamy texture.

Taster’s Review:

Yum!

I love Matcha and have been drinking it for years (although I will say that in the last year or two I have been drinking more than I had in the previous years), but I must admit that Matcha Latte drinks are a bit new to me, having only tried my first Matcha Latte in the last year or so.  But, since that time, I’ve been hooked!

This Matcha Latte mix has a sweetness to it, but it isn’t too sweet nor does it overwhelm the natural flavor of the green tea.  I can taste the distinct bittersweet taste of the Matcha, which I really enjoy.  This is incredibly creamy and energizing.

I love that this product is organic, and I also like that I can choose just how creamy I want this Matcha Latte to be by choosing my own milk – I can go with skim milk for less creaminess or I can really go for it and use half & half for an out of this world creamy experience.  Or if I prefer a non-dairy option, I can use almond milk or rice milk, or even coconut milk!

This is a versatile, delicious treat!   This product may be a little difficult to find since Matcha Mountains does not seem to sell it retail, however, it appears that it is sold in various Cafes and it is well worth the effort to find this latte mix because it’s outstanding!
