T2 have a wide selection of teas to choose from and as we were travelling to Leeds for the Christmas Markets we knew we had to stop here for a refill of our favourite flavour ‘Melbourne Breakfast’. When we visit, we love trying a few taster flavours and this one was given to use as soon as we walked through the doors and that’s when I knew it was the one to buy.
Choc Molten Marvel Tea:
This tea is a lovely mix of black tea leaves and chocolate flakes to create this delicious rich hot chocolate taste. To get a perfect flavour leave to brew for 2-4 minutes for 1 teaspoon of leaves and why not try a dash of milk for a ticker texture! Best part is you can purchase this flavour as tea leaves or teabags to suit all.
What We Thought:
This tea flavour is like a perfect mixture of tea and hot chocolate! It also has a slight tangy orange taste and a kick of Baileys to it and this makes it feel very festive, ready for Christmas. Don’t worry if you don’t like Baileys, neither do we but we love this flavour!
Why not try it out for yourself, here!

Looking for something handmade for a Christmas present, something cheap and cheerful or even looking for stocking filler ideas, well, look no further we have the perfect gift for you!
Reindeer Hot Chocolates!
This are easy to make by following our step-by-step guide below and costs no more than £5 and this will create a few.
This product is basically a Reindeer’s head created from the ingredients to make a hot chocolate drink, which would go down a dream in the cold, Christmas season here in the UK.
What will you need?
- Piping Bag – The head
- Handful of Mini Marshmallows – To fill the head
- Instant Hot Chocolate – To fill the head
- Elastic bands – To wrap up the Ingredients
- Brown Pipe Cleaner – The antlers
- Mini Pom Pom – The nose
- 2x Googly Eyes – The eyes
- Glue – To stick them all on
Once you have all the ingredients in front of you, you are ready to follow this guide:
- Open the piping bag and fill with 8 heaped teaspoons of Instant Hot Chocolate powder
- On top of the Hot Chocolate powder place a handful of mini marshmallows
- Using the elastic band close the piping bag above the mini marshmallows and securely fasten with the Elastic band so nothing falls out
- Wrap the brown pipe cleaners around the piping bag at where the elastic band is and bend 1/3 of the way up and 2/3 of the way up bend the other way to look like the antlers
- Using the glue – stick the eyes on the piping bag just below where the marshmallows start
- Using the glue – stick the pom pom on in-between and slightly below the eyes
- That is your gift complete!
This gift would be complete with the addition of a mug! Cheap and cheerful filled full of festive spirit. This gift is perfect for all ages, from young children’s stocking fillers to adults hampers with a miniature bottle of Baileys for a creative twist.
With 4 heaped teaspoons of the hot chocolate powder it’s best to add 180ml of boiling water and to create a thicker texture why not add hot milk warmed up from the microwave.
One reindeer served both of us (2 people) and it was delicious after a long day at work and coming home in the dark, cold nights this warmed us both up! We had some left over Chocolate Powder so sprinkled some on top of our marshmallows.
It’s a lovely little gift, that doesn’t take long to make and would put a smile on anyone’s face.
Thank you for reading and we would love to hear what you thought and see your photographs of your gifts!

What is better than drinking cider and being able to drive after or no hangover the next day?
Look no further the True Tea Company’s Spiced Apple Cider tea is perfect for both above. This tea is perfect for Christmas time, which is fast approaching, smelling just like mulled cider but without the alcohol.
About This Flavour:
This flavour is very sweet and has a strong apple and cinnamon taste. These tea leaves include cinnamon spice, apple slices, whole star anise and hibiscus creating a spiced winter infusion. This is perfect if you like a fruit tea with a spicy kick from the cinnamon. Another benefit is, unlike drinking alcoholic cider this tea has very little calories and sugar included.
From opening the packet the strong smell of the cinnamon and whole star aniseed fills the room. Compared to other tea leaves this flavour includes larger ingredient pieces providing a very pretty arrangement of ingredients perfect to photograph. After adding a selection of the tea leaves into the teapot, boiling water and brewed for around 5 minutes this created a beautiful deep red, warm colour and smelt delicious!
The flavour of this tea is very sweet fruity taste of apple along with a kick from the cinnamon creating that spicy flavour. Also, the infusion from the whole star anise pieces leaves a slight aniseed aftertaste.
We would definitely recommend this flavour for the Christmas/winter season as it’s an ideal winter warmer for those cold, dark nights with a Christmas aroma.
