  4. In a medium bowl, combine tea, egg, agave nectar, and vanilla. Mix together. Fold in yogurt and be careful not to over mix. Add wet mixture to the dry and stir to combine.
  5. Turn dough onto floured surface and pat into a 1-in thick circle. Cut into 8 wedges. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle lightly over scones. Bake scones for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool on wire rack.
  6. While scones are cooling, whisk together milk, confectioners sugar and vanilla to make glaze. Drizzle over cooled scones.
