Where to Buy: Arbor Teas
A rich, smoky combination of dark chocolate ganache and our smoked Lapsang Souchong Black Tea, square cut and dipped in dark chocolate.
Editor’s Note: This review represents part 1 of 6 reviews, one review for each of the six flavors in the truffle collection available from Arbor Teas
Oh yummy! Is there anything more exciting than tea-infused chocolates? As a foodie, I love it when two of my favorite edibles are paired together in one delectable item. And as a tea enthusiast AND chocoholic, I simply cannot resist these Tea-Infused truffles from Arbor Teas.
The appearance of this truffle is truly luxurious. Regal even! It has a brush stroke of glittery edible gold leaf, which adds a bit of sparkle and elegance to this yummy truffle.
And as some of you are probably aware, I’m not particularly fond of Lapsang Souchong. I am slowly acquiring a taste for this classic, but, still, it’s not my favorite tea. So, this is the one chocolate truffle in the six about which I was the most skeptical.
But, it is truly amazing! The smokiness that usually throws me off in a Lapsang Souchong tea tastes absolutely divine in this dark chocolate truffle. The deep, dark caramel-y notes of the tea create a flavor that is euphoric!
If this chocolate is any indication of what lies ahead with the other five truffles – I am truly in for a treat! This truffle is amazingly, SINFULLY delicious!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
