    Just enjoyed a few standard rich tea biscuits with lashings of real butter, delicious.

    Chocolate Rich Tea"s, just doesn't sound right 🤔

    every night I have a few rich tea bickies and a few squares of milk choc after my dinner (brands vary).. so just seems to me that a 2 in 1 would be perfect

    Choco Leibniz are pretty much the same thing.

    Aldi or Lidl do a nice version.

    yeah they are nice - but v big.. more than 1 would be too many

    A Rich Tea and a thin layer of milk chocolate would be juuuust right,.

    The chocolate would reduce the sogginess and would take away the excitement of wether the biscuit will remain intact from cup of tea to mouth.

    By the way, I have a recipe for chocolate tea 

    Peel the mint with the stems by hand, put it in a teapot, pre-rinse it with boiling water and dry. Pour the sugar and pound the mint with a pestle or wooden spoon.

    Fill in the tea, add 100 ml of slightly cooled boiling water, cover and leave to infuse for 3 minutes. Pour in the same amount of boiling water and infuse for another 2 minutes.

    Break the chocolate into small pieces or chop with a knife.

    In a saucepan, heat the cream, pour in the chocolate and start stirring with a whisk. Cook until chocolate is dissolved. Remove from heat; pour tea strained through a strainer into the saucepan, whisk and pour into warmed cups. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh mint.

    I've made them myself by melting chocolate to put on rich tea biscuits! Delicious.
