I recently tried a sample of BISCOTTEA gluten-free shortbread cookies. Oh, my my! These are so good I'll be looking for them for myself, even though I don't require the gluten-free option. I'm very excited about these cookies for my gluten-free friends! The cookies are fantastic. They come in three shortbread flavors: chai tea, early grey and blueberry. All three are really good. The texture is great (I find texture as the biggest turnoff for some GF items). I would recommend these cookies for everyone!
The cookies were recently launched at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. The BISCOTTEA company, based in Seattle, has been featured on several TV shows and in numerous other publications. (See the website for a list of stores that carry the products.) I am really digging the graphic design of the company's home page and its tea tag line, "Real shortbread created with real tea for real tea lovers." They have a coffee shortbread product set, too.
According to the press info, the gluten-free line was launched from one of the co-owner's work with children with autism. Some autistic kids show improvement when using a gluten-free diet.
I'm quite impressed, both with the product itself, and with the company's good intentions.
