Taster’s Review:

Editor’s Note:  This review represents part 3 of 6 reviews, one review for each of the six flavors in the truffle collection available from Arbor Teas

Absolutely delightful!  Divine!

Of the three that I’ve tried thus far, I think that this one is probably the best representation of the tea with which it has been infused.  In fact, if you don’t care for Matcha, you just might (might!) not find this truffle as enjoyable as I do.

The Matcha flavor here is strong – but not overwhelming. I can feel the slightly chalky grit to the Matcha.  That is not to say that this does not have a smooth, creamy ganache center, because it is very smooth and creamy.  However, because there is actual Matcha powder blended with the sweet white chocolate, there is going to be some grittiness to it.  It isn’t off-putting though… it is more like a reminder that this is Matcha that you’re tasting!

The flavors here are so perfectly matched.  The milk chocolate is sweet, the white chocolate is mild, and the matcha is fresh and vibrant.  I’ve tried a few Matcha chocolates in the past, I think that this might be the best one yet!

I highly recommend picking up a box of these fantastic chocolates.  They’d make a terrific gift for the tea lover on your list, too!  (Even if that tea lover is you!)

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
