Yorkshire Tea have launched a ‘biscuit brew’ that actually tastes just like tea and biscuits


Kyle Picknell

This is a game changer.

The fine, fine people at Yorkshire Tea have launched a new teabag that promises to bring us the exquisite combination of tea AND biscuits, in a single, intoxicating beverage without all those pesky ‘the crumbs on your jumper’.

It’s a big claim. It’s a huge claim. It’s a monumental claim.

Apparently the tea company has captured one of Britain’s most beloved tastes by utilising a ‘smattering of malty sweetness’. What is a smattering? I’m not exactly sure, but it sounds really, really good. A lovely smattering. I could really go for a nice smattering.

No longer will we have to fetch the soggy biscuit from the bottom of our brew, and no longer will we have to smash through an entire pack of chocolate digestives every time we sit down in front of the TV with a cuppa. This is the future people, soak it in. Bask in its biscuity glory.

Kate Halloran, who is Tea Innovation Manager at the company (what a job by the way) explained the decision to revolutionise the teabag industry as follows: “Biscuits are so often linked to tea, we thought why not just make life easier and put the flavours together in one delicious brew?”

She makes a very strong point.

“We’re offering all the happiness of tea and biscuits – just without the biscuit and any of the potential pitfalls that come with it. Gone are the dunking-fail days of biscuits too big for your mug, soggy crumbs at the bottom of your brew or the mid dunk breakage – we’re embarking on a new era of biscuit-flavoured joy.”

She makes a really strong point. Biscuit-flavoured joy? Sign me up, please.

The brew has been concocted by the biscuit-connoisseurs and tea-experts at Taylors of Harrogate, and will join their formidable Yorkshire Tea range alongside the best-selling Breakfast Brew and the Bedtime Brew. The tea is launching this month and will be available in Morrisons now, with packs of 20 bags costing £2.29. That’s a bargain, isn’t it?

I’d still recommend getting an extra pack of hobnobs though… just in case.
