A great chai with a good chocolatey flavor. This is exactly what I want when I don’t quite want hot chocolate but still want something with chocolate flavor.

This smells absolutely wonderful in the packet, and also brewed up. It genuinely has a biscuit aroma which follows through in the taste. The chocolate is very strong and there’s a really sweet, caramel flavour to it. There’s liquorice in the list of ingredients, but I didn’t pick up on this.

This definitely tastes like a chocolate biscuit. I’m not sure I’d go with shortbread, but it reminds me of eating a Twix chocolate bar!

I made this before I left for work this morning and it was definitely the wrong time to try it. While I enjoyed it very much, and it certainly gave me the strong caffeine boost I required, it was far too sweet and sickly. I’ll make this as an afternoon drink next time.

In the packet this smells of chocolate and strawberries. I get where the chocolate is coming from, but there are no berries listed in the ingredients. Perhaps from the natural flavouring? It reminds me assorted chocolates in a gift box and the one with the strawberry centre.

This brews up a lush deep pink and it tastes of chocolate cake. The vanilla is prominent straight away and, I don’t know how they manage this, but there’s a buttery, creaminess that, along with the chocolate and vanilla, absolutely nails the taste of cake. I don’t get anything in the way of berries during my first few sips, but as it cools I get a faint jam flavoured aftertaste.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I only purchased a mini sample pack of this, and I’m already regretting not ordering a bigger bag. I can see me finishing off the sample in no time.

This was very nice indeed. Slightly lighter than the English Breakfast from Rosie Lea, this has a unique flavour, with a mellow aftertaste. It’s smooth and delicious. It’s strong enough to become part of my morning routine before leaving for work, but I could also see myself drinking this early in the afternoon. It has that same presence of elegance that I picked up from the English Breakfast blend. Very impressive.

My family certainly know me well! I received so many tea related presents for my birthday yesterday; a winter gift box from the English Tea Shop, a Teabloom set that included a teapot, teapot warmer and tube of flowering teas; and a generous gift voucher for T2. I’ve already spent the voucher – my partner and I popped over to the T2 store in Sheffield and as well as a few boxes of tea, I also purchased the mug I’d had my eye on for quite some time!

As well as all my lovely presents, the postman also brought me a box of goodies from Rosie Lea Tea, which I’d ordered earlier in the week. Today I’ve been working my way through these.

First up – English Breakfast! This was exactly what I needed when I woke up this morning. Strong, tasty and full of flavour. I felt as though I was drinking something superior and savoured every sip. The blend of black teas were spot on and this gave me the injection of caffeine I crave in a morning.
