Have I mentioned lately how much I love these chocolates from Arbor Teas?
This one is a white chocolate ganache that’s been infused with Arbor Tea’s Masala Chai Black Tea blend. I haven’t tried their Chai, so I don’t know if this is a fair representation of the flavor of their chai tea, but, if it is, I’d have to say that it is a very pleasing chai, indeed!
I can taste the cinnamon, cardamom and cloves distinctly, but less flavor from the ginger and black pepper come through. There is a nice peppery aftertaste that cuts through some of the sweet white chocolate, however, it is a faint flavor. I detect very little of the black tea flavor, but I can taste a hint of it.
My favorite part of this treat was the gold-leaf embellished chocolate marble on top of the truffle. I can taste a hint of bourbon in this and I personally think that there should have been more to this; it would have accented the flavors in the truffle very nicely.
If my favorite local coffee house made a white chocolate chai latte, I would imagine it tasting a bit like this. It is very sweet and rich, but very decadent and delicious.
