Paul A. Young & Rare Tea Company Collaboration

Posted by in Features on June 3 2010 | Leave A Comment

We were lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of a collaboration between Paul A. Young and the Rare Tea Company’s Henrietta Lovell on Tuesday evening.

After being plied with drink (a cocktail made from gin infused with cacao nibs and jasmine tea), we got to hear all about this exciting new partnership, then watched Paul prepare some water ganache with Henrietta’s White Silver Tip tea. Check out the video above to find out all you could possibly want to know about tea and chocolate.

I’m yet to be completely convinced by the combination, but there’s no doubting the finished chocolates we tried were beautiful. The tea wasn’t overpowered by the chocolate (or vice versa) and the water ganaches were soft and delicate.

With Katie Chrisoffers of Matcha Chocolat coming out with new additions to her range, it looks like 2010 is going to be the summer of tea chocolates. I think I can live with that.

  1. Oh, and I though we had invented the chocola-tea at home!

    I love the mix. Here we have great cocoa (Belgium) and I’m a tea lover so mixing them was very straightforward and delicious.
