Quick and easy vegan oatmeal scones with fresh blueberry. Topped with a simple maple glaze. Made in 30 minutes and perfect tea time snack.
I partnered with Dunkin’ Donuts to bring you this delicious recipe!
Being Indian, tea runs in my blood. I used to drink chai while growing up and it was a very normal thing to do. It was always important part of breakfast and the day didn’t feel right without it.
These days, I drink tea without milk which is how it should be consumed.
Chamomile is my favorite and go-to tea. I have tried every flavored chamomile that is available in the market, including a pomegranate infused chamomile.
Then, I heard about Dunkin’ Donuts new line of pyramid teas. The first thing I did was to see if they had chamomile flavored tea.
Dunkin’ Donuts calls it Chamomile Fields……
The first time I read the name, I pictured fields of tea plants as far as the eye can see…. Hanging from the plants were these pyramid shaped chamomile tea bags just waiting to be plucked.
Can you imagine how amazing it would be to walk through these chamomile fields? I imagine that it would be a very nirvanic experience.
So, I walk over to the Dunkin’ Donuts conveniently located right behind my home! As I walked in, I was greeted by a display of all their teas right at the entrance! They must have known I was coming into the store.
There was only one problem, though.
They have so many delicious flavors that I couldn’t choose just one. Who can resist “Hibiscus Kiss”, “Bold Breakfast Black”, “Cool Mint”, “Harmony Leaf Green” and “Chamomile Fields”.
After 20 minutes of going back and forth, I settled on Harmony Leaf Green and Chamomile Fields. They are both known to relax and sooth the body. I could feel the tension lift from my shoulders just inhaling their aroma.
You know that I am going back tomorrow to get the others! I just cannot wait to see what Hibiscus Kiss tastes like.
If you are not in the mood to make the tea at home, you are in luck. Just walk into any participating Dunkin’ Donuts and ask them to brew you a cup! Maybe have a donut or donut hole with it.
Some days, if I am too busy and need to De-stress, I just run over to Dunkin’ Donuts. When I get there, I am always greeted by smiling employees. They patiently wait for me to make up my mind about what I want and even offer helpful suggestions. Finally, I settle on tea, hot chocolate or oatmeal and sit down to enjoy some me-time.
Oh and I grab a chocolate glazed donut too. Why not, right?!
If you want to get some me time or want to sit down to have a fun conversation with a friend, go to a Dunkin’ Donuts. They have hot and iced coffee, espresso, frozen beverages, iced tea and of course, their new line of premium hot teas. Many of their locations are open 24 hours because they understand many of live in a clockless world.
These teas are available in store but if you can also order them online. They will be delivered right to your door.
The chamomile tea did not disappoint. It had a very soothing effect on me and I felt immediately relaxed after just one cup. It also has a wonderful aroma that envelopes the whole house. I have found my favorite new tea and it is chamomile fields.
I also used the tea in this vegan oatmeal scones recipe. It made the scones very soft and flavorful.
