Recipe: Tea flavoured digestive biscuits

A cup of tea tea paired with a digestive biscuit is a British classic - why not try baking these tea flavoured digestive biscuits?
Servings: 20 x 2 /1/2" biscuits
Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time12 mins
Total Time42 mins

Ingredients

  • 5 tea bags - we used Typhoo
  • 70 g sugar
  • 80 ml milk
  • 50 g white flour
  • 150 g wholemeal flour
  • 150 g medium oatmeal - or use porridge oats, lightly ground in a spice grinder
  • 150 g butter
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions

  • Cover three Typhoo teabags with the sugar and leave in a sealed container to infuse for at least 24 hours (we made a big batch for use in other recipes).
  • Warm the milk until nearly boiling, add the remaining two tea bags, and allow to steep as it cools to room temperature, then squeeze the teabags out and discard.
  • Mix the dry ingredients, then either dice the butter into small pieces or grate into the mixing bowl.
  • Rub in the butter to a breadcrumb consistency.
  • Add enough of the tea infused milk to bring the dough together into a ball.
  • Wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat an oven to 160 degree C (Fan)/Gas mark 4, and roll out the dough between 2 pieces of clingfilm to about 4mm thick.
  • Use a biscuit cutter to cut out circles, and bake on a parchment paper covered baking sheet for about 12-15 mins.
  • Allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 mins before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy with a mug of Typhoo tea!
