Tea and Chocolate Pairing

Blissed Out ChocolatesZhi Tea will be pairing up with Austin’s own Blissed Out Chocolates for an afternoon of tea and chocolate pairing. This class (or a version thereof) was the most highly attended and rated class at the World Tea Expo. I was there and it was amazing so I decided to do a version of it here at the Zhi Tea Gallery.

Of all the chocolate companies in Austin, I decided on Blissed Out. Erika, who runs the company has similar values as we do; quality, sustainability, beauty, and a strong grass-roots local focus. And, of course, her chocolates are amazing.

So we decided to do a pairing class of 5 of our teas with 5 of her chocolates. This will be a fun, tasty, and totally interactive class.

Cost is $15 and includes all your teas and chocolates. Admission also entitles you to discounts on tea and chocolate gifts for the Holidays if you so choose.

Seating is very limited, so don’t wait!

Blissed Out Chocolate is local Austin company dedicated to brining the purest, most bliss inducing dark chocolate to the world. We specialize in organic gourmet gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, raw chocolates. Raw cacao, the main ingredient in all Blissed Out chocolates is one of the world’s most nutrient dense foods. Vast arrays of these nutrients are destroyed during the conventional chocolate making process. They hand craft each small batch in such a way that ensures the 300+ enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals remain intact.
