Where to Buy: Arbor Teas
A milk chocolate shell filled with dark chocolate ganache infused with the citrusy tang of our Earl Grey Black Tea.
Editor’s Note: This review represents part 6 of 6 reviews, one review for each of the six flavors in the truffle collection available from Arbor Teas
I realize that I’ve probably said this about each and every truffle in this collection – but this one is the best!
The creamy milk chocolate is a perfect match with the Earl Grey tea – and while the chocolate IS the dominate flavor (it is a chocolate truffle, after all), the flavor of the black tea and bergamot do come through.
The flavor is very satisfying. The chocolate is rich and sweet and absolutely delicious. The bergamot has a clean, citrus-y note that lends a lightness to the taste. The black tea notes are very soft in this, but not completely overwhelmed by the chocolate.
These chocolates are available during the months of November through February, so there’s no time to waste! I think I discovered them on the Arbor Teas website back in March of this year, and it’s seemed like it took forever for November to finally get here so that I could try them! I’ve been so looking forward to them, and they have EXCEEDED my high expectations. They are really fantastic!
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!
