The right tea for the right chocolate… With the right pairing tea and chocolate can offer a great food experience, without any alcohol involved, in this case.Here it is some suggestions:Jasmine tea and vanilla white chocolate. We start with a very sweet match. Jasmine tea is a very fresh one, light for the mouth, and so it is a perfect match for the creamy, rich vanilla flavoured white chocolate. Perfect for a cold winter evening!And if you want to try Jasmine tea with a very different chocolate,try a fruity dark one.Earl Grey and milk chocolate. A perfect balance between the sweet creaminess of the chocolate and the citrus notes of the tea. Do you want more of that notes? Then try the Earl Grey with an orange or lemon flavour dark chocolate!If you want to… spice up your chocolate pairing, a dark chilly one is what you need, and you can match it with a couple of different teas: the milky Chai or the smoky Lapsang. And, as Masala Chai is simmered in milk, use milk chocolate to stay on the same note.Assam and sea salt chocolate. Assam has a strong personality and a malty flavour, so it can stand up to the bitterness of the salt. For a different experience, again chocolate milk is an “easy” match.Ceylon tea and Orange chocolate. The delicate flavour and well defined taste of the Ceylon tea exalts the bittersweet feeling given by the orange note.As milk chocolate is probably the most versatile one, you can try it with Sencha or Matcha green tea, while spicy or salty chocolate can be a good match also for the exotic white tea.Well: now you have all you need against the winter blues… Put the kettle on!
