Dark chocolate with Red Jade tea – a well-known tea in Taiwan, where the tea is grown in the mountains around Sun Moon Lake – made from a specific tea plant (cultivar 18). Ruby Red tea also called. And the taste … that’s what it’s all about.
We were very surprised, as Chocolate sellers we have quite a few customers who also hold tea tastings and combine chocolate with that. This way we learn a little bit about tea from time to time. But because we are hardly involved with it ourselves, we know little about it. Fortunately, by encountering more and more chocolates with tea, we learn more. What is Oolong and Honcha. And which teas we like.
We found this Red Jade Tea from Fu Wan to be amazing at the same time. For those who also want to taste chocolate with tea in it, we can heartily recommend this as a start. And then you automatically start looking interested in the bars with other teas. Or do you order tea somewhere and look for manuals on how you can best brew it. We are in any case happy to come into contact with good tea through chocolate.
