A Cup of Tea and a Biscuit

cup of tea and a biscuit smSat having a nice cup of tea and a biscuit in the late afternoon (or is it early evening, already?) sunshine in the garden.

Above the distant thrum of the motorway, way off in the distance, i can hear the trill of birds marking their territory.

There’s something relaxing and fundamentally essential about cups of tea and biscuits.

I don’t think a mug of tea with a cookie would have quite the same cache about it.

Rich Tea Biscuit

Now then! You do not mess with an englishman and his cup of tea. Do you dunk your Rich Tea biscuit, or gently nibble?

I used to be a dunker myself; but regretted too many soggy breakages. I will never go back – I’m a nibbler through and through.

Custard Cream

The Custard Cream. Well … er… I … have to admit … I’m not really keen on this biscuit.(Yes, I know I’ve just started with a deep favourite, but …) I do, however, love the fact that ALL custard cream’s are decorated with the weird swirly patterns (I think they’re supposed to be ferns). They’re clearly been around for ages. and have stood the test of time. Which I have to tip my hat to… Well done, custard cream.

The Golden Crunch Cream

Well, in the absence of Sports Biscuits (which I seem to be having trouble finding anywhere) I shall have to start this set with my second favourite biscuit – The Golden Crunch Cream.

Actually is it possible to have a favourite biscuit? Surely there is a biscuit for every situation.
