Few pairings are more flawless than tomato and basil. Perhaps it has something to do with the parallel seasonality of the duo—both are at their most flavorful during the warmer months. Each one has the ability to make the other taste more fully like itself, and the pleasing combination is a delightful addition to teatime.
Celebrate this perfect flavor pairing with fluffy, flaky Savory Tomato-Basil Scones. Though they would be a welcome part of a full Afternoon Tea, they are also delectable nibbled on their own with a cup of light, summery green tea or a deliciously deep Darjeeling.
