Oh two of my favourite things......tea and chocolate in one cup. Now I've tried chocolate tea before and could never make my mind up about it. Today though I really craved some chocolate. but I'm trying to retrain myself to get back onto my diet.
I've not been good, I'm managing to maintain my weight a little which is good but blimey I could eat a kilo of chocolate every day if given the chance. It's sweet stuff I'm craving and I just wish it would naff off. I don't want to spoil things as I've lost two and a half stone on Slimming World and I'm so close to my three stone award, well been close for a while and I so want to get there.
I'm not very good with temptation so if there is a chunk of chocolate staring me in the face I'm having it.....life's too short and all that but yes life will be so much shorter if I don't shift some more weight.
So I had a plan. I wondered whether having some of this Chocolate Chip Tea from Adagio Teas would take that craving away. It won't cost me syns as it's just tea so I'd be onto a winner.
The Verdict: well of course there is nothing like tucking into a piece of soft milk chocolate, something irresistible like a Galaxy bar but it ain't happening. This tea is actually really nice and my favourite that I've tasted. It contains a really light taste of chocolate not overpowering at all and do you know I think it has helped. I find a drink of tea quite filling which is why I probably drink so much but this has made me feel quite full and taken away my craving.
We'll see if it lasts but I might carry on and just use it when I'm really pinning for a bit of naughty chocolate. I think I've been quite clever there and used tea as a bit of therapy. It could just send me the other way and make the craving worse but I will have to keep you posted. The Yorkshire Biscuit Brew which I absolutely adore hasn't stopped me having the odd biscuit so I could be setting myself up for a mighty fail here.
