Earl Grey and I go way back.  When I have a cup, it is like visiting a comforting friend.  When I need to relax or am chilled to the bone, nothing soothes me like a hot mug of Earl Grey tea with a splash of milk.  I have so many fond memories of having tea with my mom, grandmother and aunts.  And even now when I return home, there is a small group of ladies that my mom and I get together with and drink tea and visit for hours.  As you might expect, I enjoy a sweet with my tea.  Scones are one of my favorite tea party treats.  I love that scones are a bit dry and crumbly because that makes the tea that much more refreshing and rehydrating.  Also, any baked good that not only I, but the majority of society acknowledges as an acceptable breakfast food gets extra points in my book.

I have not met a scone that I did not like, but I particularly enjoy scones with fresh fruit in them.  Again, there is something about the contrast between the burst of fruit juice and the dry scone that is very pleasing to me.  It is for those reasons that I love these Raspberry Coconut Scones.  In my opinion, they are the perfect crumbly scone texture and the tart burst of berry flavor marries so nicely with the subtle sweetness of the coconut.  Who’s up for a tea party?
