Where to Buy: Arbor Teas
Dark chocolate ganache infused with our wonderfully-floral Jasmine Pearl Green Tea and grapefruit zest, diamond cut and dipped in white chocolate.
Editor’s Note: This review represents part 5 of 6 reviews, one review for each of the six flavors in the truffle collection available from Arbor Teas
Of the six truffles in this collection, I think that this one is the prettiest. The pretty lavender blossoms on the white chocolate shell are beautiful! This is almost too pretty to eat. Almost!
The white chocolate shell is sweet and has just a little bit of snap to it when I bite into it, just before it gives way and my teeth sink into the tea-infused dark chocolate ganache.
I worried that I wouldn’t be able to taste the jasmine tea over the strong flavor of the dark chocolate ganache. But after allowing the chocolate to slowly melt on my tongue, I could taste the jasmine notes. The flavor is delicate amid the dark chocolate, but I can taste the jasmine and the green tea.
I think that the addition of the grapefruit zest helps this truffle immensely. The grapefruit essence penetrates the deep chocolate flavor and enhances the flavor of the jasmine tea, and creates a euphoric experience for the palate! This is absolutely amazing!
Of the five truffles that I’ve tasted thus far, this one is my favorite. Delicious! I am sad though, that I only have one truffle left. I must send my husband a link to these truffles in the hopes that he will order some for me for Christmas!
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!
