There is a trend toward new textures in food. Witness the novelty textures of both the Cadbury Fuse bar and bubble tea. In the UK, as elsewhere, traditional commuter journeys have now been supplemented by Starbucks coffee. To combine these, and continue my occassional series of tea-based inventions, I propose marketing croutons for tea, so that you can take a deep covered cup of milky tea to work with you and have a piece of toast, and still have a hand free. An optional stir-in runny egg syrup would also be available.
