Learn About Scones With Pacific Merchants

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

January is National Hot Tea Month, and while there’s plenty to be said about tea on its own, we thought that now would be the perfect time to explore tea’s favorite sidekick: scones.

The Origin of the Scone

According to many reputable sources, scones most likely originated from Scotland. Made from the best white flour, scones began in a large round shape, as opposed to the triangular shape that many are formed in today. When it became time to serve the scone, it was sliced up in to quarters to be served to tea guests. There are three potential origins for the word “scone”: the Dutch, schoonbrot, and the German, sconbrot, both meaning “fine bread,” or the Gaelic, sgon, which means “large mouthful”.

Bake Your own Scones

Pacific Merchants’ own Mason Cash line has their own brand of scone mix! Available exclusively on our website, this scone mix is easy to use and delicious, and the perfect thing to make in our Mason Cash mixing bowls. We have three varieties available: original scone mix, currant scone mix, and cranberry orange scone mix, all of which are very popular.

Have A Spot of Tea with Price & Kensington

When your scones are finished baking, make sure you have your Price & Kensington tea set ready to go! Available in two-cup and four-cup sizes, our tea sets come securely packaged. Our two person tea set includes a 16 ounce tea pot, two 10-ounce mugs and two tea caddies, while our four person tea set includes a 40 ounce tea pot, four tea mugs and four tea caddies.
