Quintessentially British as subtle Earl Grey cold-pressed Bergamot flavours are blended with single origin, organic, fairly-traded milk chocolate from The Dominican Republic. A chocolate bar for tea time!
This is a great treat or chocolate gift for anyone who appreciates a good cuppa.
This bar is also included in our British Icons Chocolate Gift Collection
Organic fair-trade MILK chocolate (cocoa mass, cocoa butter), whole MILK powder, organic cane sugar, organic vanilla extract, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin 0.1%. Min. Cocoa solids 37%. Inclusions: Cold-pressed Bergamot oil.
Our Earl Grey chocolate bar blends especially well with a Rioja wine or a Pinot Noir, or in fact any wine made using a blend of Tempranillo or Pinot Noir grapes. The low acidic levels in this variety blend well with the sophisticated flavour profiles of the Earl Grey bar, especially with the predominant citrus undertones from the Earl Grey's Bergamot oil which prevents the wine from feeling too dry, or tart.
Alternatively a young Riesling with its steely, mineral qualities combined with notes of citrus blossom, lime and meyer lemon would work remarkably well.
A citrus laden IPA would work very well. Chose an IPA with notes of grapefruit and lime, which will marry perfectly with the bergamot oil.
