English Tea Scone and Its Characteristics
Have you ever attended some tea parties with the presence of the English tea scones? Or have you tasted the English tea scones? If not yet, then great! Here are some of the common distinctions of the English tea scones for you to better understand what an English tea scone look like and how does it differ from the other tea party courses.
As far as I know, the English tea scone is one of the three main courses in an English tea party, and the English tea scones are commonly associated with tea biscuits and muffins. Most of the English tea scones are served after the tea sandwiches and before the desserts and sweets.
Accordingly, the ideal English tea scone is made from eggs, milk, butter, and self raising flour. These basic ingredients of an English tea scone are also the ingredients that jams are made from. It is as well considered that the English tea scones are best served warm from the oven. It is for the fact that the clotted cream in an English tea scone will slide off if the English tea scone is served hot. Just like some of the common jams and sort of desserts, the English tea scone must be taken on the day that the English tea scones are made for the English tea scones will result to a bad texture and taste if served late.
For those who are willing to learn the difference between the English tea scone and the tea cake and tea biscuits, it is necessary to note that the English tea scone’s texture is half way between the tea cake and the tea biscuit. Also, the English tea scones are harder in texture than a tea cake but much softer than the tea biscuit.
In a typical English tea party, the English tea scones are seldom eaten alone and the English tea scones are typically spread with butter or butter and jam. Just like some of the tea courses, the English tea scones have two major variations that are cheese English tea scones and the fruit English tea scones. The Cheese English tea scones are never served with clotted cream, and it is noted that this variation of the English tea scone is best served hot in order to melt the butter if spread into the top. Furthermore, the English tea scones after the application and the melting of the butter must be coat with butter once again. This process is applied into the English tea scones to create a good taste and better look.
In contrast to the English tea cake which is toasted and coated with butter while hot, the English tea scones are never toasted. You should remember that thing! On the other hand, the fruit English tea scones are oftentimes iced for weddings, especially the rich ones. But then it is also important to remember that you would never ice a scone.
Lastly, one should note that the English tea scone is one of the important parts of an English tea party so it is very necessary that the English tea scones are served best and properly.
