Digestive in my tea

and cognitive dissonance

Is there a link?
What biscuits do you dunk and when they break and fall in, can you still continue to drink that tea or do you make another pot?
And do you believe it's so wrong to dunk your biscuits yet still do it anyway?

Nothing wrong with dunking, you keep dunking Terry.
Digestives break too easily, try another kind?
You need a tough biscuit for tea, have you considered dog biscuits?

Hope this helps.

Peter Kay does a good biscuit dunking routine...Hob Nobs are pretty tough...and not to bad a taste either..

i have to throw the tea away if a biscuit falls in it, but the skill is all in the timing of the dunk !

Do biscuits not break in coffee? it's one of the devil's drinks to me so I honestly don't know. Apple pie in tea? does the pastry break up the same as with the biscuits?
Should we really be doing this?

Tried the dog biscuits fosey, but Max used to look at me with those big sad eyes as if to say "why you nicking my grub?". Since him dying I haven't been able to look at another...that and they tasted horrible!

But the look on your face made it all worthwhile. You should have videoed it.

It depends on what the biscuit is, a chocolate biscuit dunked in coffee is good, I sometimes cheat with my dunking and hold a spoon under the biscuit in case I mistime it, but really half the fun of dunking is the risk of the biscuit breaking.

I find ginger biscuits best for dunking or shortbread.

I find the same barney. They stick together like glue.

Ginger Nuts .. 'cos you can dunk and then suck the liquid out and you still have a whole biscuit to bite
