    While we know there’s a dedicated camp of dunkers and an equally dedicated camp of non dunkers, what you might not know is, there’s a compelling reason to dip your cookie into tea: It tastes better that way! And it’s scientifically proven. Well, so this NPR article report. So, if you like to splash your Oreo, Tim Tam, or madeleine into your brew, it might just be that you’re enjoying it the best possible way. And you’re scientifically intuitive. “Dunking Science: Do cookies really taste better dipped in tea?”

    Well, I’m going to be getting some fine Tim Tams this Easter week-end so I will dunk in your honor @thedevotea.
