Follow-up to Tea: a very important debate from Musings of a blonde
As Rich suggested in a comment on my last entry, the dunking of biscuits in tea is also a hard-fought subject.
So what are your favourites? Mine are Hob-nobs!

Hobnobs are good, got a nice flavour and fairly resiliant to moisture. As I've said already, caramel chocolate digestives, hold together well when hot and wet!

I'll say only this as to biscuit dunking… watch Peter Kay Live at the Manchester Arena…
That is all.

The king of dunking.

Chocolate digestive of the plain chocolate variety – yum yum yum…
04 Jan 2006, 12:22
Rich tea biscuits, necessary or vile?
04 Jan 2006, 13:56
Rich tea biscuits = cardboard.
In my humble opinion.
04 Jan 2006, 13:58
nah, cardboard holds together better when damp

I quite like rich tea biccies, but not in tea.

I also love Rich Tea biscuits. And I quite like them in tea but you have to be very careful – they're highly volatile.
I would definitely also go with the dark choccie digestives – great suggestion!

Chcolate fingers! Or those Vienniese (ok I have NO clue how you spell that) swirly things that cost about £5 for three.

Dark Chocolate Digestives are soo nice!
But caramel milk chocolate digestives for dunking!

I always liked to dunk Malted Milks.

Dunking is best avoided. Dunking in coffee is sometimes, rarely, OK (Rich Teas, Hobnobs and Malted Milks are good for this). If it was a case of tea–dunk or die, it'd have to be something without too much sugar. Maybe a nice buttery shortbread (not these sugar–covered supermarket ones).

nah the best dunked are bourbon creams– mmmm!
rich tea are really nice but you have to be really careful dunking them or you end up using a spoon!!

I'm reading a book about dunking at the moment (yes such things exist). Apparently you should dunk horiztonally instead of vertically to reduce the chances of breakage. I've not read which biscuits are scientifically the best for dunking yet. Personally I agree with the suggestion of caramel digestives. mmmmm.

Parker is right. Peter Kay has it for you dunker people.
"dunk me…again….again…again….again….again….again, i'm going nowhere son

Twix…. bite the end off, dip it in, and suck your hot chocolate thru it like a giant straw
05 Jan 2006, 22:52
Peter Kay once again – rich teas are "one–dips". Classic!

You all need a Nice Cup Of Tea And A Sit Down!
06 Jan 2006, 09:28
Well apparently they worked out a formula for dunking…you don't believe me?
06 Jan 2006, 14:30
any biscuit can be dunked and should be for we all know that they are the true reason to have a cuppa.
as a sidenote – bite both ends of a penguin bar, dip into the tea and then use it as a straw.
