My koicha was so bitter this morning I reached for this. Sweet, rich, chocolatey, and fruity. The flowers on top gave more crunch than flavor, but they were a nice touch.

My chocolate for the day! Rich, creamy, CHOCOLATEY… slighty fruity. Can’t really taste the mint on top, but that’s ok cuz I’m not sure how mint and honeydew match…

Back on 5/7 Rishi had a FB contest. All you had to do was comment on what tea you’d add to chocolate and why. The winners recieved a 4 piece tea ganache variety pack and a canister of tea (found out the tea was Jasmine Pearls). I was one of the winners! I can’t resist diving into these so here it goes. Should be interesting since I’ve never had anything Earl Grey before.

Hmmm… Obviously getting nice creamy chocolate covered in a chocolate shell. I’m also getting citrus. I think I’m getting bergamot, but it’s kinda hard since I have no clue what it tastes like. Not a fan of the raw leaf on top. All in all, VERY good!

the citrus is the bergamot!

from wikipedia: “The bergamot … is a fruit the size of an orange, with a yellow color similar to a lemon, and has a pleasant fragrance. The juice tastes less sour than lemon, but more bitter than grapefruit.”

Haha ok duh. I really should have wikied it. I was thinking there was also a floral or herbal ingredient in Earl Grey. I’ve always known Earl Grey to be black based and as I like very few black teas, I’ve never paid attention.

there does seem to be something flowery that is added to a lot of Earl Grey blends, or maybe just used to scent them? Teavana’s Earl Grey Creme has either blue malva (mallow), or cornflowers.. Whatever it is, I don’t particularly care for it! Maybe that’s why I prefer Lady Grey, which is actually less perfumey and adds more lemon and orange (Twinings uses dried peels).

I wasn’t trying to be a smartypants with the wiki link, btw. It’s just a weird citrus fruit (that I’ve never tasted or seen before either) and they described it better than I could! :-)

Haha, no I know- you were just being helpful! And I appreciate it! I just feel really stupid for not doing research. I was way too excited to think of that lol.
