Tea Collection

Tea is one of the most popular drinks on the planet. However, behind this everyday infusion, beyond the boxes of tea on show in specialist shops throughout the world, there is a thousand-yearold history that plays a role in the social and cultural tradition of many nations.

The most commonly used variety is assam (sometimes called C. sinensis assamica or C. assamica) and the plant from China (called C. sinensis sinensis), as well as various crossbreeds of both of them. In this case, we wanted to pay homage to this thousand-yearold product associating it to our chocolates and, although tea is cultivated on all the continents, we wished to pay tribute to Asia, the home of tea, with five chocolates perfumed with five Asian teas.
