Ahhhh, tea – the panacea for all emotional crises. There is very little that can’t be solved by a click of the kettle.
This selection contains six substantial squares of supremely creamy, handmade fudge lined up in a bronze sliding tray. A truly palate-pulsating Afternoon Tea Fudge selection combines 12 hour infused teas with their ground leaves, for an added depth of flavour, flecked through the smooth,sweet fudge; all balanced meticulously with complimentary spices and citrus:
- Earl Grey with bergamot oil and lemon
- Masala Chai with ginger and peppercorns
- Persian Rose infusion with cinnamon and fennel
Marking the next evolutionary stage for our beloved cuppa, Fudge Kitchen tea-med up (thank us later) with fellow Kentish artisans, Debonair Tea Company, set up by Phil and Louisa Johnson to “source, create and serve high quality loose leaf tea without pretence … to make exceptional tea a daily pleasure”.
Tea is a true art form. As is premium fudge making. So, when two sets of award-winning artists of their field came together, the results were only ever going to be cha-mazing!
Selecting the perfect teas and infusions to pair with the sweet creaminess of fudge, was just the start for our fudge technologists. Much brewing, steeping, grinding, selecting and blending later, working their way through Debonair’s incredible offer of over 20 hand blends, the team had honed the search to three. First, their Great Taste Award winning Extreme Earl, a simple blend of organic Ceylon orange Pekoe with a particularly punchy organic bergamot oil. Next, their naturally sweet and gently spicy cardamom heavy Masala Chai, blended with cinnamon, ginger and red peppercorns. And finally, Persian Chai, a black tea layered with fresh rose petals, which absorb the flavours.
Back in the FK gastro-lab, each tea was infused for a minimum of twelve hours and blended with our hand made, whipping cream based fudge; and the leaves then ground up for a beautiful, subtle flecking of rich flavours. The result … a tea-riumph, as guaranteed to reinstate a smile as its therapeutic source. But then, there is very little that fudge can’t put right too.
