Afternoon Tea Chocolates and a Giveaway #34

Afternoon Tea Chocolates

When I first saw these Afternoon Tea chocolates from Sent With a Loving Kiss, I was smitten and got very excited. This may not be a closely guarded secret, but I do have a weakness for afternoon tea. I am far more likely to give a tea party than I am a dinner party and if ever anyone wants to take me out (which doesn’t happen nearly enough) afternoon tea is what I would choose for preference. Luckily, I didn’t need to drop heavy hints to my nearest and dearest as I was sent a box to review.

Inside the box sat a cute little tin decorated with colourful teapots. When I opened the tin, the enticing smell of sweet chocolate leapt out at me and I was hard put not to take a bite immediately. The tin consists of twelve chocolate discs playfully decorated with dainty cupcakes, teapots and milk jugs: two dark, four white and six milk – something there to suit most tastes. Much as I wanted to dig into these straight away, I am being very restrained and saving them for a future afternoon tea party, or even for decorating an extra special cake.

Apart from the afternoon tea theme, I particularly liked being able to personalise the tins with my own messages. For my tin, I asked for the inscription “everything stops for tea”. I should have added “and if it doesn’t it ought to” but foolishly omitted that bit. This makes for a nice keepsake for the recipient once the chocolates have been demolished. I’m looking forward to using mine as a fun container for homemade biscuits or even chocolates.

Sent With a Loving Kiss Chocolate Tin

These delightful chocolate discs are one of the many unique gifts available from Sent With a Loving Kiss which can be sent as a thank you, birthday present or for any other occasion desired. Other similar chocolate tin sets that caught my eye include Garden Party and Shopoholic Chocoholic. Tins come in all shapes and sizes, however with varying chocolate contents to match. Handmade in Hampshire from Belgium couverture chocolate, the ingredients are of good quality, containing no vegetable fat and only natural vanilla. The dark chocolate contains a minimum of 53% chocolate solids, the milk 33% and the white has a minimum of 28% cocoa butter. The chocolate weighs in at 125g and the tins can be personalised to give your own special message. At Β£19.99, these are not cheap, but they are an enjoyable, quirky, individual gift that I think would make anyone’s day.

    The afternoon tea set is so cute! I’m a huge fan of going out for tea, too, but if I could choose any theme at all for a box of chocolates it would probably be to have the word “chocolate” written in a dozen different languages πŸ™‚

    I’ve always loved the chocolate animals you can buy at National Trust properties, so I would probably decorate the chocolates with animal images.

    MY CAT
    as Frozen in time,
    His eyes look up to me,
    Brown fur and a white smudgy face,
    And I know he needs nothing else but my warm embrace.
    He purrs and wraps himself around me,
    To show me that he cares
    Tickling me with his tail as he does,
    As I sit in my chair.
    Time has no barrier
    Like his love for me that he shows,
    As He meows with a long lasting purr
    And nudges me with his nose.
