Imperial Jasmine tea Alunga™

Recipe for approx. 4 mini bonbon log moulds
In Cacao Barry's "Chocolate x Tea" Bulletin, Chef Ramon wished to pay tribute to Asia, the home of tea, with five chocolates perfumed with five Asian teas. These bonbons, with their Jasmine tea-infused Alunga™ Milk Chocolate ganache, are delightfully balanced and celebrate the floral qualities of the exotic tea. The Lactée Barry Milk Chocolate shells bring just a hint of additional sweetness.
