Lessons from Theo Chocolate: chocolate & tea

Just in time for chocolate & tea loving moms, our friends at Theo Chocolate have artfully handcrafted a beautiful collection of 4 tea infused ganaches using our Organic Earl Grey, Honeydew Melon, Peach Blossom & award-winning Jasmine Pearl tea.  Below, Theo chocolatiers take us step by step in the ganache making process.

Step 1: Start with a happy and passionate Theonista and a fresh bag of organic loose leaf tea

Step 2: Steep the tea into the cream

Step 3: Strain the tea from the cream before adding to the ganache

Step 4: Stir the tea infused cream with the ganache

Step 5: Temper (a method of heating and cooling chocolate to give it a smooth and glossy finish)
Step 6: Temper again

Step 7: Spread the delicious tea infused ganache

Step 7: Taste the creamy, aromatic and complex flavors of the tea infused ganache
