In select corners of the world, dipping your precious little biscuit in tea is seen as gauche social behavior. I don't know why this is, but I wish it weren't this way. Having cookies with tea, and occasionally dunking those little monsters into your sweltering cup, is objectively good and correct.

It's also a delicate art—you've got to dip your cookie into tea just long enough for it to soak up some liquid, but pull it out before a part of it breaks off and dissolves into your cup, in which case you'll be resorted to spooning the cookie's remnants out of your tea. Pesky! All things to keep in mind as you make the following:
