Biscuits, Biscuits, Biscuits: Are Rich Teas Vegan?

by Fabian Jackson

2min read

Whether you’re an avid dunker or you prefer to keep your biscuits dry, we can all agree that sometimes simple is best. But are the classic favourites, rich teas, vegan?

Are you someone who finds it very easy to get through a packet of biscuits, or are you somehow able to show restraint and just eat one or two? (We’re most definitely the former.)

Rich tea biscuits

Rich tea is a classic variety of sweet biscuit that’s at home in kitchen cupboards across the UK. They’re made from wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil and malt extract and were first made in 17th century Yorkshire – proving that they’ve always known how to enjoy a brew.

Are rich tea biscuits vegan?

Yes, rich tea biscuits are totally vegan-friendly as there’s no butter or other animal products or derivatives used in producing them. A great excuse to keep on buying them in our opinion.
