Gluten Free Spiced Chai Scones

These delicious gluten free spiced chai scones are absolutely divine. The classic spiced chai flavors pair together with the tender scone to create a wonderful breakfast treat.

I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m not much of a coffee drinker. I’ve never really acquired a taste for it, which is quite funny considering Todd likes his coffee as hot and black as he can get it. It’s just not my thing. Do I like it with a little (a lot of) milk and sugar like my grammy used to make it for me, yes, but I’m much more of a hot tea drinker.

I even shared how I organize my hot tea because I love to have options and a big selection to choose from. 🙂

With the fall season quickly turning our warm days into crisp and cool mornings and evenings, I’ve been enjoying my cup of tea more regularly again. And as I was sitting in my chair enjoying a hot cup of spiced chai tea, I had the most delicious idea come to mind; spiced chai scones.

As soon as the thought came to mind, I couldn’t shake it… and I couldn’t wait to make them! I knew exactly what I would do to make them as delicious as my favorite cup of tea.

So today, I bring you September’s Scone of the Month flavor, Gluten Free Spiced Chai Scones! Needless to say, if you love a good spiced chai, you’ll love these scones!

In case you’re new here (and just finding out about my scone obsession), I love creating new and different scone flavors with my favorite gluten free scone mix. I’ve created quite the collection of scone flavors and I’m not stopping yet! I have so many more ideas!

This scone mix is my absolute favorite. It’s gluten free, but you’d never know it, and even if you aren’t gluten free, I’d highly recommend trying this mix if you love scones! It is such a fabulous mix!

To really lean on the spiced chai flavor in the scones, I used one of my favorite spiced chai tea bags! I warmed the milk, then let the tea bag steep in the milk. Once the milk had a lovely dark caramel color, I knew it would be full of flavor… and I was right!

But, to make sure those tasty biscuits really hit home on the spiced chai flavor, I also added in a 1/4 tsp of ground allspice into the flour mix. Allspice basically includes all the spices of a chai tea: cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

And now for my favorite part of these yummy scones, the spiced chai glaze. Oh my goodness. It’s entirely fabulous. Again, I warmed up the milk, then steeped another tea bag until the milk was caramel in color.

And then I mixed it with the powdered sugar. The result, is one of my favorite glaze flavors to date. I will definitely be using this method again and I highly recommend trying it!

These scones are worth a try and I love how well they pair with my hot tea. Yummm….

Cook Time 12 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 16 Scones


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Pastry Blender
  • Measuring Cups
  • Sheet Pan
  • Parchment Paper



  • 1 Box Namaste Muffin & Scone Mix
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 8 tbsp Cold Butter
  • 2 Eggs Lightly Beaten
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 tea bag Spiced Chai I used Bigelow


  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 tea bag Spiced Chai I used Bigelow


For The Scones:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Heat milk in the microwave until warm. Add tea bag and allow it to steep until the milk is a dark caramel color.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, add allspice, then cut cold butter into dry scone mix using a pastry blender or fork. Blend until crumbly.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry mixture. Add the eggs and milk, squeezing the tea bag well to remove the excess milk. Stir until well combined and the mixture is moist.
  • If mixture is still dry and crumbly, add more milk, but only add it in small increments. A little will go a long way.
  • Dump scone mixture onto parchment paper lined sheet pan, and shape into two even circles, about 1 inch thick.
  • Use a knife to score each circle of dough into 8 equal pieces, then cut through the mixture and slightly pull each scone wedge out from one another for expansion room when baking.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Set aside and cool for 5-10 minutes.

For The Glaze

  • In the microwave, heat milk until warm. Add tea bag and allow it to steep until the milk is a dark caramel color.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk, squeezing the tea bag well to remove the excess milk. Mix well, removing any lumps of powdered sugar with the back of a spoon against the sides of the bowl.
  • Drizzle glaze onto cooled scones.
  • Enjoy!
