The collaboration between Fossa and the tea curators of Pekoe & Imp has resulted in another great collaboration for lovers of good tea, lovers of good chocolate and lovers of the combination thereof.
We are certainly not tea experts ourselves (now a little bit for chocolate), so we mainly share what the makers themselves say, below, and that it is a milk chocolate with a high cocoa percentage (we are betting at 60-65%) – and Jing Jun Mei Hongcha tea – if you don’t know what that tea is you can find plenty about it on the internet, but read about the taste below what the makers have to say. What we found is that it is a fairly new tea (made from the 90s), also called ‘golden eyebrow’ and originating from the Wuji Mountains in China.
