Pairing Dark Chocolate and Black Tea
Fall is quickly approaching us, and the weather is calling for a change. With the change comes gloomy weather and a need for an afternoon pick me up. This is why this month we are pairing delicious dark chocolate and a black tea.
Fine artisanal crafted chocolate should be experienced with other fine foods. No matter what the pairing is, it brings a whole new appreciation for the two foods with new tastes, textures, flavors, and notes you didn't experience eating them separately, oh ya it's also delicious and fun to do so.
This is why every month we make a suggested pairing with the delicious chocolates you receive in your monthly Kekao subscription. This months pairing is Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate 65% and English Breakfast Tea from Twinings of London.

Black Tea with Dark Chocolate
While pairing the English Breakfast Black Tea with Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate, we took an afternoon break. The weather was a bit gloomy and we badly needed an afternoon pick me up.
After brewing a cup of English Breakfast, we opened up a bar of Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate.
We first took a sip of the tea and then a small bite of chocolate, allowing it to melt in our mouth before chewing. This allowed us to enjoy the full flavors of both, resulting in a delicious afternoon snack.
During this pairing, the flower notes were really brought out in the Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate. This pairing definitely left us feeling spring esque. It also gave us a nice boost to get us through the day.
