What could be better than tea, than some yummies to go along with it!
When I went on a university trip to London, that was when I was introduced to proper English tea. Earl Grey with cream, or with lemon, but not at the same time. And I discovered tea biscuits. Oh I ate many McVities Rich Tea Biscuits. I bought some many packets back home with me! And always felt elegant, elegantly dunking them into my tea, which just didn't taste the same back in the states.The great thing about many types of tea is that you don't just have to have a digestive or a biscuit to dunk- pretty much anything sweet and crunchy, or warm and savory works. Certain things pair well with certain teas, but I believe it's all about personal preferences and tastes.
I haven’t been back to England in years, regrettably, but I still do drink a lot of tea, which I like to take many different foodstuffs with my tea, depending on my mood. If I have a cup of English Breakfast tea or a British blend, a bagel suits it perfectly. Ginger, lemon and orange teas I quite enjoy with scones or mini cookies.
I tend to go in moods with my tea, and lately, each morning must begin with a chewy onion bagel and a cup of rich English tea. And then I catch up on my news for the day and begin writing. How do you start your day?
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis
