Biscottea To Launch Tea-Flavored Shortbread Line

Biscottea To Launch Line Of Gluten-Free, Tea-Flavored Shortbread At Winter Fancy Food Show
(from a press release)

Biscottea's popular line of tea-flavored, Scottish-style shortbreads is expanding to include three flavorful gluten-free varieties. The hard launch will be at The Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, CA, January 18 through 20. The new gluten-free varieties were a "Top Pick of the Week" on The Nibble, which called them "a real find for anyone in need of a gluten-free treat," and include three flavors from Biscottea's established line-up: Chai Spice, Blueberry with Organic White Tea and Earl Grey with Organic Darjeeling Tea. They are available in giftable 5.6-ounce boxes and convenient "grab-and-go" two-cookie packs for lunches and snacks on-the-go.

Seattle-based Biscottea has experienced rapid growth since opening 16 months ago thanks to the singularity of their product. Their buttery, Scottish-style shortbreads are baked with organic tea, were featured on The Food Network's "Unwrapped" and have been a consistent "Top 10" amongst food reviews throughout 2008. The original varieties include the flavors in the gluten-free line, plus Honeybush (a relative of rooibos or "red tea") and Mint.

I like these shortbreads...particularly the Chai, Earl Grey and Blueberry, my top three flavor favorites! Now I can give them to my gluten challenged friends...thanks for the heads up. I can't get these in my local stores yet, but there are a number of stores,, google biscottea. I haven't seen the gluten free yet, but maybe if enough of us ask for it? Thanks again for the new info! :-D
