Chocolate & Tea Pairings for Valentine's Day

Chocolate pairs with tea famously! The art of pairing tea with chocolate, amplifying the flavor of one with another is simply elegant. Like tea, chocolate can be broken down into different categories such as white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate. Dark Chocolate can have distinct flavor characteristics providing citrusy, fruity, floral, earthy, nutty or chocolaty notes to enhance the flavor of the dark chocolate.  A pairing may be complementary, contrasting, or enhancing in flavor so you may want to take notes on what your pallet prefers. You may enjoy a tea and chocolate pairing that have similar flavor characteristics such as a floral tea with a dark chocolate with floral notes for complementary flavors. You may try an earthy Pu-erh tea with a fruity dark chocolate for a contrast in flavor. You could also keep it simple by pairing a black breakfast tea with milk chocolate to enhance their existing flavors. Experience a satisfaction like no other by pairing your chocolate with tea. Try one or more of the chocolate and tea pairings below.
