Spring Teas Collection: Chai Truffle

Chai TrufflePosted by Jasmine:
Masala chai (or more commonly known as chai) literally means ‘spiced tea’ in the Hindi language. This drink originated in India, and has grown to enjoy world-wide popularity. Traditional chai is made with black tea, milk, Indian spices, and a sweetener.

Hedonist has infused milk chocolate and cream with organic chai made with cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, clove, and black pepper. After being cut into squares, the aromatic ganache is enrobed in 72% dark chocolate. A dot of milk chocolate is piped onto a corner of each truffle, adding visual flair.

Matching the scent of chocolate with the fragrance of sweet and savory spices, these truffles smell as good as they taste. As soon as you bite into the truffle, the variety of spices explodes on your tongue. The milk chocolate ganache is perfectly suggestive of the milkiness of traditional chai. Without overwhelming your senses with too much chocolate or too many spices, these truffles melt in your mouth and leave you wanting more.

Chai truffles are available as part of Hedonist’s Spring Teas truffle collection. Next time you’re at Hedonist, try a chai truffle and experience the exotic flavors of India.
