The Perfect Pairing: Top 5 Biscuits to Dunk in Earl Grey Tea

There's nothing quite as comforting as a warm cup of Earl Grey tea paired with a delicious biscuit. Dunking a biscuit into your tea creates a delightful combination of flavours and textures that can enhance your tea-drinking experience. To celebrate National Biscuit Day we asked the Babingtons team to share their favourite biscuits to enjoy with a cup of Earl Grey.

Digestive Biscuits

A classic choice for tea-dunking, Digestive biscuits have a slightly sweet, wheaty flavour that pairs wonderfully with the aromatic bergamot notes of Earl Grey tea. Their sturdy texture holds up well when dunked, providing a satisfying crunch.


Originating from Tuscany, biscotti are renowned for their crunchy texture and rich flavours. These twice-baked biscuits are often infused with almonds, citrus zest, or even chocolate. Their firmness makes them an ideal choice for dunking into Earl Grey tea, allowing the flavours to meld together and create a delightful taste sensation.

Ginger Biscuits

For those who enjoy a hint of spice, ginger biscuits are an excellent choice. The warm, zingy flavour of ginger adds a delightful kick to the tea, while the biscuit's firmness allows for a longer dunking time without losing its structure.

Rich Tea Biscuits

Known for their lightness and simplicity, Rich Tea biscuits are an ideal accompaniment to Earl Grey tea. Their mild taste and slightly crumbly texture blend well with the tea's floral notes, making for a balanced and satisfying dunking experience.


Hailing from central Italy, pizzelle are thin, waffle-like biscuits with intricate patterns that are created using a special iron. These delicate treats have a delicate vanilla flavour, which harmonises beautifully with the aromatic profile of Earl Grey tea. Their light and crisp texture make them an excellent choice for dipping, adding a touch of sophistication to your tea experience.

Dunking biscuits into a cup of Earl Grey tea is a delightful ritual that brings together the comforting flavours of tea and the satisfying crunch or crumble of a biscuit. Whether you prefer the classic Digestive or the more adventurous ginger biscuit, there's a perfect pairing waiting to be discovered. So, next time you make yourself a cup of Earl Grey tea, remember to reach for a biscuit for a truly enjoyable tea-dunking experience. Let us know which is your favourite biscuit over on Instagram
