High Tea has been the traditional epitome of luxury and elegance for many years. Since the 1800s, women congregated to talk in ways that they could not in mixed company, revelling in tasty treats and perfectly prepared tea. In recent years, the popularity of High Tea has surged again, as women flock once more to bask in each other’s company while enjoying the sweet indulgence of tea and feminine fashions.
Lindt have just released their tea-inspired Gourmet Truffles, a perfect accompaniment to a classy High Tea gathering. While coffee has traditionally been thought to be the ideal companion for chocolate, chocolatiers have discovered that tea is perfect. With its subtle blends, tea complements, rather than overwhelms the flavours of the finest chocolate. Each box of the Gourmet Truffles (RRP $16.99) contains six delightful flavours (Milk, White, Dark, Hazelnut, Vanilla and Dark Orange) that pair fine teas with luxurious chocolate.
The truffles are richly decadent, creamy and melt-in-your-mouth delicious and presented in a luxurious gold box.
Lindt’s master chocolatier, Thomas Schnetzler has selected some of the finest teas to match Lindt’s gourmet truffles.
- White truffle – paired with China Jasmine Tea
- Milk truffle – paired with Rose Grey Tea
- Hazelnut truffle – paired with English Breakfast and Milk
- Dark Chocolate truffle – paired with Darjeeling
So there’s no excuse not to dust your teapot off, call around the girls and settle in for a decadent and delicious afternoon in.
