"Deep, rich and malty, it has notes of caramel and burnt sugar. The addition of the cocoa nibs brings a huge richness to the proceedings, with a fuller mouthfeel and unmistakable chocolate hit. Hints of orange zest and blackberries. The nose is bold with the rich smell of high quality, earthy dark chocolate."
Pump Street Chocolate
Our friends Pump Street Chocolate share our ideas about sustainability and sourcing - they import directly from single estates and cooperatives around the world. Provenance and process is key to their product. They source cacao from the best growers who ferment and dry the beans at origin. They then tailor our roasting, grinding and conching to yield the best tasting chocolate possible.
The cocao nibs in our new Chocolate Tea blend are from Crayfish Bay, Grenada. The land, 13 acres of which is under cocoa, has five natural springs and is steep so has natural drainage. The soil is acidic and has high organic content due to the constant defoliage of the cocoa.
We blended the nibs with a hand-crafted black tea blended from harvests across a small, independent estate in the Shire Highlands in Malawi.
