Best biscuit/tea combination?

    I like to dunk and I have recently discovered M&S thick coated chocolate biscuits are perfect for dunking because you can melt the outer chocolate without risking a soggy centre and crumbs in the bottom of the tea.

    Do you like to dunk?
    What's your favourite biscuit for having with or in tea?
    What sort of tea?

    don't drink much tea. do people dunk different biscuits in coffee?

    i have to dunk plain biscuits, though.

    I do love biscuits with tea but I'm not a big fan of dunking. Dunking chocolate, don't you get melted chocolate in the tea? I wouldn't like that.

    As a result I'm quite conservative in my dunking activities largely based on a fear of the biscuit falling into the tea, so it's mainly Rich Tea or if I'm feeling adventurous, a Ginger Nut.

    Dunking should be an offence punishable by exile to St Helena.

    Tea is a noble beverage and best enjoyed without accompaniment.

    Biscuits do not benefit from added moisture.

    That is the law and the prophets.

    Thus endeth the lesson.

    Buy a penguin biscuit, bite off diagonal corners, put one corner in your coffee and suck the coffee through the other corner. Instant coffee mocha!

    Tastes foul with tea:(

    Don't they come out of the tea bald?

    Hobnobs for me, but it has to be coffee not tea.

    A Wispa is no good, you need the biscuit centre of the Penguin bar to hold the whole thing together!

    I like dunking a custard cream in my coffee. Soft biscuit, a bit of bitterness from the coffee and the sweet centre - Yum!

    This is the joy of the thick chocolate. You get melted chocolate but there's enough left intact to keep the shortbread crisp.

    I've just rediscovered Fruit Shortcake. Wonderful for dunking.

    Anyone else insulted by those Oreo dunking ads?

    Crumbs in your tea. I can think of few things in life worse than that.
