Is there a differences between Tea Biscuits and Scones. They look the same to me except the shape. If they are the same they why are there two different names?

Yaa, as far as i know there is a differece between tea biscuits and Scones. what i know , the main difference is that scones tend to have eggs and are sweeter and more elaborate , while biscuits dont include eggs and have simpler , more savory ingredients. that doesn't mean a biscuit has to be plain. it's just that biscuits are more likely to have cheese or fresh or dried herbs in them rather than, say currants or chocolate chips.
