Prepare for the virtual tasting experience:
Once the chocolates arrive, please remove them from the shipping box and foil bag immediately, as they may have been shipped on ice. Store in your refrigerator or a cool dry place until the tasting, bringing them to room temperature at least 30 minutes before the virtual experience. Have a glass of water or bowl of coffee beans alongside you to cleanse your palate between truffles and sips of tea.

Each of the truffles included in the chocolate assortment has been curated to pair perfectly with all of the teas in the tasting set. Feel free to choose one to enjoy or prepare them all for the experience.

Traditionally tea is enjoyed as a hot beverage, but we have found that the best way to explore the complex flavors is actually at room temperature. Thus, teas can be prepared 10-15 minutes before the event.

Please refer to the instruction card here for further instructions on how to properly brew tea.
