You will not be able to resist our gourmet tea-infused chocolate truffles, only available November through February! We have offered these tasty little treats during the holiday season for 5 years in a row, brought back each year by popular demand! As always, these truffles are hand-made by our friends at Sweet Gem Confections, using the finest quality chocolate. Each truffle is infused with a different variety of organic tea, carefully matched with the perfect combination of chocolates to highlight the unique characteristics of each. See below for a little description of each of our six (6) tea-and-chocolate creations. Please note: the four (4) pack truffle assortment includes Earl Grey, Jasmine, Lapsang Souchong, and Masala Chai.
Coconut Rooibos: Creamy milk and dark chocolate ganache infused with Coconut Rooibos, dipped in milk chocolate, and topped with toasted coconut.
Earl Grey: A milk chocolate shell filled with dark chocolate ganache infused with the citrusy tang of our Earl Grey Black Tea.
Jasmine: Dark chocolate ganache infused with our wonderfully-floral Jasmine Green Tea and grapefruit zest, diamond cut and dipped in white chocolate.
Lapsang Souchong: A rich, smoky combination of dark chocolate ganache and our smoked Lapsang Souchong Black Tea, square cut and dipped in dark chocolate.
Masala Chai: White chocolate ganache infused with our spicy Masala Chai Black Tea, coated in white chocolate, and topped with a chocolate marble.
Matcha: A healthy dose of our organic Matcha Green Tea give the white chocolate center of this milk chocolate truffle a vivid green color and rich green tea flavor.
The six (6) pack truffle assortment comes with one of each of the truffles described above. The four (4) pack truffle assortment includes Earl Grey, Jasmine, Lapsang Souchong, and Masala Chai. And, as with all Arbor Teas products, we've gone to great lengths to source the most sustainable products and packaging materials available, so you can enjoy this treat guilt-free!

...after Dad and us kids, I mean. My Mom loves chocolate and she's a tea-aholic. She's pretty traditional in her tea tastes, though, a "plain black" is good for her, she's not into blends or flavored teas. I wasn't sure if these truffles, with their flavored tea ingredients would be her speed.
But, BOY are they. She actually waxed "foodie poetic" when talking about these truffles - which I've never heard before. "They really spent their time determining which chocolate pairs with which flavor. And when I bit into it I could tell, 'Oh, Earl Grey!' I've already eaten the first two." An absolute winner. I know already that this is one of those gifts where I set the bar high. If these truffles don't arrive on her doorstep in future years, I will be in TROUBLE.

Greatest Chocolate Gift. We get a few boxes every year mostly as gifts (the Lapsang Souchong is surprisingly awesome). This year my fiancee gave some boxes to faculty in her department in thanks. The response was overwhelming. One recipient spent the afternoon telling everyone in the department how amazing the chocolates were. Next time she'll have to get everyone their own box!
