Rose and Vanilla Tea was made in collaboration with New Zealand’s Super Chef Simon Gault.
Simon asked Hogarth to make this chocolate for a special event he was doing for the heads of Dilmah Tea. He liked the result so much he asked us to make the chocolate for his new restaurant Giraffe on the Auckland Viaduct, and we love it so much we decided it should become an addition to our range.
This chocolate is started with aged 70% Madagascar, to which the tea is added straight in and re grind, then added a little extra organic vanilla for sweetness. The resulting chocolate has a wonderful bitterness from the tea and a sweet floral aroma.
