Chocolate and tea?? We'll definitely need some expert insight to successfully pair those two. This is a combination of a kit available for pick up starting Tuesday, May 9 for those who register, and a virtual Zoom presentation on Thursday, May 11 at 6 PM. The virtual interactive lecture with certified Tea Specialist Danielle Beaudette, of The Cozy Tea Cart in Brookline, NH, will start with a brief background on the production of the cocoa bean and the tea plant, highlighting their similarities. Danielle will teach us how to properly taste chocolate, and we will finish by sampling five different teas paired with chocolate ranging from 35% - 85% cocoa, in the kit that registrants picked up starting Tuesday, May 9. Register using the form on this page so that you can pick up your tea and chocolate kit, and the Zoom meeting link for the May 11 virtual presentation will be emailed to you the week of the program.
