Tea n Biscuits
not very new media is it?

Considering the last about Fish n Chips got good results, I thought lets try another one.

Anyway the point I am making is you can NOT beat a good cup of Tea with biscuits.

Far too many tech companies have dropped this tradition and pump their staff with High-Energy drinks etc etc.

Tea & Biscuits, Good for you.

(now which biscuits are the best)

anyone?

Do you guys have tea time at work? Do you get a lunch break?

So do you just have tea at your desk or like in a break room? Sorry I just find this quite interesting.

Rich Tea Biscuits - Everyday use
Garibaldi's - Mid afternoon treat
Chocoloate Hobknobs - Elevenses
Slice of carrot cake - When you're feeling particularly naughty!

lol..

ive been in and out a few jobs - some have designated breaks and some didnt.

the best was working for a charity that rented out conference rooms to subsidise their income - whenever there was a booking we could help ourselves to the leftover cakes in the afternoons.

Ive also been at a few places where friday is "cake day" and staff take turns buying a load of cakes for everyone. :)

Yeah, cake day is often a traditional birthday thing in the uk. The birthday boy/girl brings in cakes for everyone...

I have been stuffing myself for the past two days with tea and biscuits. A strange man with a trolley keeps coming round every 30 minutes or so.. I can see him in the distance making his way towards me again!

As regards to the best biscuit I have been eating half coated chocolate hob nobs, is it an English biscuit? :)

Because of this unexpected kindness from work (probaly another round of sackings coming up) I pushed myself harder at the gym last night and will tomorrow night as well!

company culture is diverse. some provide cakes on a friday, some encourage employees to buy cakes on their birthday, the best was when i worked in munich, the company bought sparkling wine and cakes whenever a major software release was completed. all tools were downed at noon and we celebrated all afternoon in the office. bavarians will celebrate anything at the drop of a hat.

I'll second the Rich Tea nomination for all-round biscuit, and add good old Digestives to the list. Was a big fan of the Jaffa Cake as a wee bairn. Too sweet now.

Although you didn't request it here's my favourite all-round tea - Dilmah. Full leaf, unblended, fresh packed, swiftly shipped, mountain Ceylon. The best. Never goes bitter in the pot.

I like them pink biscuits that just dissolve if you put them in you mouth but dont eat them quick enough, not that i do that often.. what are they called... Pink wafers or something like that, nothing like keeping it simple.

When I was last in America, I went into a place called "Popeyes Chicken", looked up at the menu, and there it was "Buscuits 90c" or something like that, so I got one, and to my surprise it was nothing like a buscuit, more like a dumpling.

Your biscuits are like cookies here. Our biscuits are like rolls. Although cookies and fried chicken sounds good too.

I strongly recommend it black, no milk. A much more refreshing drink that way, and you can taste the tea too.

> recommend it black

This is what my friend Signi keeps telling me. I oblige now and then. Depends on her mood. Not married to it or anything. But given druthers I reach for the moo. What's bred in the bone, eh?

> can taste the tea too

Dilmah has no problem with it. Lot's of flavour. It's steeping as we speak.

Tea with a little bit of milk at work, black tea in a restaurant after a meal.

Biscuits:
All time fav: Plain (not milk) chocolate digestives
Second: Shortbread (the more buttery the better, i like McVities)
Third: Mint Viscounts (does that count?)
Forth: Ginger Nuts

Absolutly hate: Hob Nobs, Milk Chocolate Digestives

But 4 o clock is for afternoon tea with scones (no currants, they have no place in my world!)

Beware supermarket own label versions of plain chocolate digestive

You forgot the Cornish Clotted Cream

Phooey on biscuit/cookies. :) Cheese and crackers! Tea is optional. I prefer espresso, but had a really amazing jasmine green tea sample at a london street market... If I could get that over here, I might switch.

>>You forgot the Cornish Clotted Cream
I was flying home from PubCon and the snack on the plane was a scone'ish thing and clotted cream and stawberry jam. Never had clotted cream before and quite frankly it didn't look good but I gave it shot (trying to be cultured and all that). It was fantastic - I could definitly see having one of those in the afternoon :)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah..........
Clotted cream
Now you got me goin'.
16 years here in Spain and I still haven't found a place to get it. Hoping my spanish girlfriend will bring me some home when she gets back from UK, but I'm not sure she understood what I meant and she doesn't speak English.
Talk about purgatory..... :(
