Coming in from the cold dark nights all you want to do is cosy up to a warm fire in your Pyjama’s with a cup of something tasty – usually with mini marshmallows and sprinkles too! We were kindly sent these to review.
We have put together a selection of our favourite hot chocolate, tea’s, coffees and gift sets to keep you toasty warm this festive season:
1. Whittard of Chelsea Flavoured Hot Chocolate Selection.
When it comes to indulgence over Christmas, hot chocolate is a must with mini marshmallows, squirty cream and a flake to keep it all company- you can’t beat having a cup whilst watching a festive film! We couldn’t help but adore Whittard selection of hot chocolate and honestly couldn’t decide on one so what was the next best thing? A selection of five different flavours all wrapped in a gorgeous nude and brown box.
The perfect gift for any chocolate lover, the selection has 5 different kinds to choose from which include: Mint, Chilli, Rocky Road, Caramel and one of our favourite Creme Brulee and yes it really does taste like one! Each tin comes with a beautiful design with a colourful label to match each kind for example green for the mint.
This is the ultimate in temptation, so if you are giving them as a present, put them away or wrap them up quickly before you end up trying them out!
2. Teatulia Single Garden Organic Teas
Searching for something a little more refreshing and different for over winter? Then Teatulia may just be the answer. It’s new range of Garden teas which include Lemongrass, Tulsi, Earl of Bengal, Green Tea and Black Tea. These really do hit the taste buds especially the Lemongrass, Katy from the office said it was very pallet cleansing especially after having a heavy meal.
Each tea comes in it’s own bright packaging and are individually wrapped in sachets to ensure full taste and freshness. These will really stand out in your kitchen and make the perfect gift to any tea fanatic out there.
Teatulia organic teas retail at £3.40 each and are available from Holland & Barrett, Harrods and selected independent health and wholefood stores nationwide.
3. Whittard Time For Coffee Selection
Do you know someone who would love nothing more than snuggling up to a steaming cup of coffee? Whittard Time For Coffee gift set would be an excellent choice for Xmas. Arriving in a bright red box with the logo placed on top, each individual coffee tin offers something different.
In this selection you can choose from Breakfast blend, Chelsea Expresso (we loved this one as it wasn’t to rich and had a vanilla sweetness to it) and the After Dinner tin which goes great with after dinner cheese and biscuits or dessert.
The perfect partner to your day, finding the right bean and and roast is essential. Coffee connoisseurs will want more and more.
4. Twinings Winter Range.
Have you always wanted to create the coffee shop experience at home but can never get you tea to taste just as good? Twinings new range of teas which include Chai Latte, loose pyramid pouches and Origins range. The Chai Latte range which comes in a host of flavours, taste sweet and have exotic packaging, our favourite of the bunch was the Limited Edition Vanilla flavour – it really did taste like a professional had made it.
5. Next is the loose pyramid pouches by Twinings
These again come in fun, colourful and delicate packaging. The pyramid design allows the tea to infuse and fill your cup and senses full of rich aromas, we loved the popcorn tea, yes we said popcorn! It had a savory taste but was also sweet too!
6. Twinings Origins Range

You can explore different tastes of the world including Moroccan Mint – a rich blend of green tea and spearmint, or Spicy Chai – featuring an array of inviting flavours and aromas from India, or even Bold Kenyan – with its strong and earthy flavour! We loved the Moroccan Mint and felt after a heavy Christmas dinner this would be the ideal drink to sip on.
