The classic pairing of tea and chocolate
Food tasting offers a culinary experience to your guests. This holiday, surprise your guests with tea and chocolate tasting ; two classics that on their own are delightful, but brought together they are more decadent and delicious. Here is our suggestions.
Earl Grey Tea
The Earl Grey Tea is a tea blend flavoured with natural bergamot essential oil, which pairs very well with a dark chocolate bar.
Pairing: Fairtrade Dark Chocolate Earl Grey
The smoothness of vanilla beans pairs very well with dark chocolate.
Pairing: Fairtrade Midnight Dark
The refreshing flavour of Mint Tea balances the bitterness of dark chocolate.
Pairing: Fairtrade Dark Chocolate Mint Crisp
The creamy coconut flavours of coconut chai tea matches perfectly with dark chocolate. Just like the strong black tea stands up to the coconut sweetness, the dark chocolate stands up to the coconut flavour.
Pairing: Fairtrade Dark Chocolate Coconut Bar
The strong natural cocoa flavours of the English Breakfast tea pairs very well with milk chocolate.
Pairing: Milk Chocolate Almond Dreams
Darjeeling Black Tea
Darjeeling tea has musky-sweet tasting notes that balances very well the sweetness of chocolate.
The Kashmiri Chai is very similar to green tea with a creamy citrus taste.
Jasmine tea provides soft, floral notes and a mouth drying feeling that matches well with the sweetness and the creaminess of white chocolate.
Pairing: White Chocolate Almond Bark
Matcha is quite bitter, but when paired with white chocolate, the aftertaste is a very well balanced creamy, matcha flavour.
