This Organic Green Earl Grey Dark Chocolate features our 60% dark cacao deliciously infused with our green Earl Grey tea. The resulting sophisticated flavor profile comes from our authentic Earl Grey blend that uses true bergamot oil -the concentrated extract from the rind of the fragrant citrus fruit. For this particular creation, the traditional Earl Grey style has been altered, using green tea leaves as opposed to black. The resulting tea flavor is much more floral, thanks to the young green leaves used, giving the bar an unmatched aromatic quality that perfectly compliments the deep flavors of the rich cocoa.
Handcrafted by our master chocolatier using only the finest organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to exceed the highest expectations in both quality and taste. We believe that the genuine flavor of the cocoa is what‰۪s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and‰ÛÓin the case of our milk chocolates‰ÛÓwhole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to create a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Central and South America. Traditionally made into a bitter drink and celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years‰ÛÓwith its name literally translating to ‰ÛÏfood of the gods‰. Around 1500AD, European explorers began transporting cocoa beans back to Europe, where they soon took hold amongst the upper class. Over the years, the supplies and popularity of this divine fruit continued to increase, allowing it to spread its powerfully-delicious reach to almost every corner of the world.
The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are due to its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants‰ÛÓwith studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
The intensely rich taste of this chocolate, along with it‰۪s lingering notes of semi-sweet earl grey, give it an exotic flavor profile that can beautifully compliment a number of drinks, eats, and flavors. A unique embrace of this treat, is accompanying the bitter sweetness with a glass of port, or any dessert wine of your choosing. The subtle tea flavor, of this particular chocolate, can also act to prime the senses for the traditional flavors enjoyed during an English ‰ÛÏhigh tea‰-making it perfect to serve alongside your favorite biscuits, scones, or teacakes at your next afternoon tea party. The mild zest that lingers in this earl grey infusion also has been found to pair beautifully well with the bitter caramel notes of a dark roasted cup of coffee, or a long-steeped cup of black tea.
