Chocolate and Tea Pairings Are Always A Hit!
Posted by Kimiko URIU on July 24, 2014 (0 Comments)
KIMICHA Tea hosted a fabulous tea and chocolate pairing workshop at the Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut shop on Dalhousie Street in the Ottawa Byward Market last July 23. Some of the heavenly combinations featured in this workshop included genmaimatcha paired with a decadent, hazelnut paste-filled creation and chai paired with a fruity, spicy mango peppercorn dark chocolate.
Pairing tea and chocolate is a wonderful adventure in flavor and texture. When paired properly, the warmth and complex flavours of tea can accentuate the rich, decadent flavours of the chocolate. The key to a memorably good pairing is being able to achieve a good balance of flavours, choosing teas and chocolates that complement each other’s flavor profiles, while making sure that one not overpowering the other.
There is no right or wrong way to pair tea and chocolate. Try your own combinations and see what works best for you.You can also join our next tea and chocolate pairing workshop!
