Matcha Chocolat Logo Jade Gift Set

In order to celebrate the launch of the new website I’ve teamed up with Matcha Chocolat to give one lucky reader the beautiful (not to mention delicious) Jade Gift Set, rrp £30. The set comprises of 16 assorted tea infused chocolates, a caddy of English breakfast tea and 2 bags of solid chocolate discs, one flavoured with bergamot and the other with chai spices. Perfect to unwind with.

Matcha Chocolat creates handmade dark, milk and white chocolates infused with a sublime selection of teas from around the world. Founder Katie Christoffers is drawn to the fusion between tea and chocolate for the rich heritage and diverse flavours that they both possess. As Katie puts it “tea and chocolate have inspired the senses for centuries and are now both enjoying a renaissance of interest on account of the sheer breadth of their flavour profiles and their readily understood health benefits.”

To be in with a chance of winning the Jade Gift Set simply let me know your favourite type of tea or hot drink in the comment form below and a winner will be picked at random. The competition is open to UK residents only due to the fresh ingredients used in the chocolates and their shelf life. Closing date 25th June.

    2. Helen (Fuss Free Flavours) Says:

      I like weak China teas and strong coffee form a cafetiere or espresso machine. Never filter coffee.

    3. Rosie Hopkins Says:

      Hot orange squash. Ginger biscuits dipped into it taste wonderful!

      The best tea I ever had was when an Indian friend of a friend made curried tea from scratch; I just wish I could recreate it.

    4. Jo Says:

      A cup of very hot Yorkshire Tea or a strong cup of coffee in the morning to wake me up

    5. Kim Says:

      I love the aromatic, slightly flowery taste of darjeeling the most.

      I enjoy green and white tea, not together, also Greek herbal teas!

    7. Lynne Says:

      First thing and last thing, jasmine or oolong tea best.. But I’ve recently rediscovered the joys of a first flush white darjeeling from the Margaret Hope estate.. lovely.

      But mid morning has to be a big cup of espresso coffee, made in my Bialetta. Even the aroma is enough to make you sit up and smell the coffee 🙂

    8. Helen Costello Says:

      Hi! It’s got to be a strong coffee with lashing of Baileys! And perhaps the odd Ameretti biscuit dunked in!
