My (rather sophisticated, magnet-closure) box was carefully packaged with four pumpkin flavoured scones, along with four Twinings English Breakfast teabags, and a pot each of strawberry jam and orange marmalade.
Is there anything better than afternoon tea on a Sunday? No. No there's not. Except maybe for an afternoon tea delivered straight to your door, which is exactly what happens with Sconnoisseur. Sending boxes of delicious, freshly baked scones in a whole host of flavours, Sconnoisseur is the place to go for all your afternoon tea needs and, luckily for me, I was offered the chance to review one of their seasonal boxes.
Having never tried more interestingly-flavoured scones like this, I was a little unsure of what to expect. However, the pumpkin flavour is subtle and not at all overwhelming. Instead, it perfectly complements the natural taste of the scones. It was interesting to see the slightly orange colour of the scones too, which obviously comes from the natural pumpkin ingredients. Both jam and marmalade had a jelly-like consistency, although not particularly thick, and each jar held enough to cover two scones thickly, although it could stretch to all four if you were a little more conservative with your spreading.
It was certainly a fun, delicious novelty and one I'd be very happy to try again. I don't know about you, but I've got my eye on the dark chocolate and orange scones!
