  5. Marie Townsend

    Hot buttered toast with a cup of tea first thing in the morning 🙂

    I have such as sweet tooth so it’s difficult to choose 1 favourite tea accompaniment! I think I’ll have to go with the classic shortbread biscuit 🙂

  7. Lorna Williams

    Has to be anything with chocolate on it…so that it melts with the heat of the tea when you take a bite then a sip…lovely!

  8. Juls

    It has to be something simple and straightforward -a digestive or shortbread – nothing too poncy trying to take over the tea!

  9. Saran Benjamin

    It has to be a nice digestive chocolate biscuit x

  10. leigh

    A twix, i like to bite the ends off and slurp my tea through it, definately a guilty (and messy lol) pleasure

  11. Sharon McGuinness

    I love either hot toast, a toasted crumpet or a fruit scone lightly toasted with a smothering of lurpak butter. Delicious!!

  12. Wendy

    Scottish shortbread – this is for James. I’m a non tea drinker x

  13. Gemma Turner

    I love nothing more than dunking my chocolate hobnob into a hot mug of tea, with the chocolate melting an going all goey- yum, just thinking about them is satisfying xx

    Tea and biscuits, the perfect partners. Just like me and my wonderful husband of 43 years ✾◕‿◕✾

  66. Jo Boyd

    A rich tea – dunked so that it is quite soft, but not for so long that it disintegrates and leaves bits in the tea (a very difficult art to perfect, but worth the practice)

  67. Diane Thomson
