i may never eat a single piece of chocolate without a cup of tea beside me ever again!
ok, so i tried a few yunnans side by side. and may i say, i have never ever had a single yunnan before…
but i have found that it is the thing that just might have me eating chocolates more often now. and i dont really eat it all that much. but now that i have tried them together…and tried chocolate on its own (ran out of tea and i thought it’s not a good idea to brew black tea so late at night) but…the chocolate taste without the richness of tea was sorely lacking.
and so i brewed a tiny cup. ahhhhhhh, perfect ^^
Well, they do go quite well together! just wrote a blog post last week regarding similar ingredients that chocolate and tea share, theobromine. Very interesting.
theo = God, bromine = food
so that’s why it feels like heaven! thanks for sharing, david! and it just so happens that you have a biblical name too! :D
Chocolate would go very well with Santa’s Secret.
I do dark chocolate + red wine as a treat every few months. Have not enjoyed chocolate + tea though (yet?) but that may be because I like dark chocolates and light, fresh teas.
