The English Tea Store carries many popular British cookies and cakes that can be paired as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea. McVities, the most popular biscuit and cookie name brand in the UK, has many of its sweets on our site, including digestive biscuits, Hob Nobs, Rich Tea biscuits, and cream-filled bars, like Penguin Biscuits and Lyles Gold Syrup Creams. We also carry crunch creams and wafer cookies from other name brands. All of our cakes are imported from Great Britain and Ireland and some are made with sultanas, a raisin made from white seedless grapes. Our most popular brand is Bronte cakes in a number of fruit varieties, but we also carry Liqueur cakes, a light sponge cake with brandy filling and Irish Cream flavor. Scottish shortbread cookies are another popular item and, around Christmas, can be ordered in holiday tins. We sell boxes and tins by Walker, the typical Scottish shortbread cookie, and Norfolk Manor, makers of thin shortbread. In addition, we carry other Christmas sweets year-round, such as Christmas pudding and mincemeat pie filling.
