chà.ke.li

thanks hubs!  #chàkeli #tea #chocolate #hongkong #茶古力 #香港 Over the past couple of days, Satoshi went to Hong Kong with some of his co-workers.

Before he left, I asked if he could look for these chocolates, Chà.Ke.Li which are made by an upscale Chinese restaurant, Yè Shanghai.

The reason I asked for these were because they were apparently infused with various teas.

He purchased 8 of their tea chocolates.

Jasmine (Ghana 40.5%), Longjin (Papua 35.7%), Matcha (White 37%), Earl Grey (Mexico 66%), Oolong (Venezuela 72%), Tieguanyin (Santo Domingo 70%), Shuixian (Cuba 70%), Pu'er (Tanzania 75%).

Unfortunately for most of these, the tea flavors were so overpowered by the chocolates they were unnoticeable.

We did enjoy the Jasmine, Matcha, Shuixian & Earl Grey ones though.

A bit disappointed, I am still glad we got to try these.

Thanks Satoshi!

beautiful chocolate - what a shame that they didn't deliver on the tea flavor!

Rowena, the concept of adding tea to the ganache is interesting though :)

Take care.
