Hello all.

I am not British, but I've always loved a cup of tea. I had never tried "biscuits" with my tea before, but after reading this series I ordered a pack of hobnobs from amazon. I live in California, and had to pay premium prices for them, but the Hobnobs finally arrived today.

They are unbelievably good. I now feel a mixture of envy and spite towards those who live in Great Britain :evil: . My Jaffa Cakes haven't come in yet, but if they are half as good as the Hobnobs, wow.

Any advice on the best tea to go with either one? I tried Earl Grey with these (half the pack is gone). Mr. Green really has great taste in snacks.

If he is ever on here, thanks for the inspiration to help me become an author. Wouldn't have done it without you.

Welcome to the wonderful world of dunking. Hope that word makes sense to you.

For a good strong tea try anything that is called "Assam". That is a perfect breakfast tea.
There is also "darjeeling" called the champagne of tea. A more delicate flavour than assam, try it with lemon rather than the milk you'll have in the assam.
There is "Lapsang Souchong" which has a smokey flavour.
Try exploring the different types of teas, there are green teas, black teas, oolong teas...all different types.

Then comes all the fun of biscuits, custard creams, bourbons, digestive, arrowroot, (avoid rich tea biscuits), jammie dodgers, garibaldi

I really need to go and make a cuppa and get a biccie now!

I'm not a tea aficionado, but my wife and I are quite fond of the "Mighty Leaf" brand or organic tea. We've had several different flavors from them, and our favorite is the African Nectar. You can find them on Amazon.com in various quantities, it's worth trying the sampler just for variety!

If you want real tea, you need lose leaf and a proper tea pot.

For tea, try Tea Pigs (really) here; http://www.teapigs.co.uk/tea/all_tea
They sell through Amazon as well.

For a real tea pot for it, try a Suki teapot; http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=a9_sc_1?r ... 1349514310

Neither are cheap, but you'll taste the difference right away.
