Black Tea Pairings
Lindt Excellence 85% and Assam Tea
Lindt Excellence 85% and Assam tea create an intense flavour experience. The tart and malty flavour of the tea draws out the rich and intense tones in the chocolate.
Lindt Excellence Orange Intense and Earl Grey tea
The bergamot flavour of Earl Grey tea with its subtle tones of muscatel is the perfect accompaniment to the citrus flavours of our much-loved classic Lindt Excellence Orange Intense. Balancing the high citrus taste, sliced almonds compliment the tea’s earthy undertones for a well-rounded flavour.
Lindt Excellence Sea Salt and Assam tea
A dark chocolate enhanced by fleur de sel crystals to create a bar bursting with flavour, Lindt Excellence Sea Salt is best enjoyed with a brightly-coloured Assam tea. The tea’s brisk malty notes and strong flavours compliment the chocolate’s salty-sweet flavour intrinsically.
Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy and Earl Grey
Early Grey works beautifully with the creamy caramel character of our Lindt Excellence Extra Creamy. The honey notes in the chocolate enhance the citrus taste in the tea - combining with the bergamot for a complex aroma.
Lindt Excellence Dark Caramel and Sea Salt and English Breakfast Tea
Much like English Breakfast tea is rich and invigorating, so too is Lindt Excellence Dark Caramel and Sea Salt. Buttery caramel combines with a pinch of fleur de sel for a stimulating flavour experience. Combining the two accentuates the rich caramel taste. Add milk for aromas of warm toast and honey that harmonise deliciously with the chocolate. A stunning and simply delectable pairing.
Lindt Excellence 78% and English Breakfast Tea
Lindt Excellence 78% blends perfectly with the robust flavours of English Breakfast tea for a full-bodied taste. Add milk to accentuate the chocolate’s creaminess. This is a classic.
Chai Tea Pairings
Lindt Excellence Chili and Chai Tea
A robust dark chocolate with a gentle heat of mild chili; Lindt Excellence Chili perfectly complements the aromatic, spicy notes in a chai tea. Cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and clove intertwine with the chili for a powerful burst of flavour – add a dash of milk for a more subtle taste.
Green Tea Pairings
Lindt Excellence 70% and Green Tea
Experience an enhanced cocoa flavour by pairing our Lindt Excellence 70% with a soothing green tea. The deep flavour of the delicate grassy tea wraps around the richness of the chocolate creating a fresh taste. No need for sugar, milk or other additions – let the purity of the green tea shine through.
Lindt Excellence Mint Intense and Moroccan Mint Tea
Lindt Excellence Mint Intense perfectly pairs with a refreshing mint tea - you could say they were made for each other. Enjoy a reviving mint tea, brewed light or strong, slightly sweetened with a square of crisp Lindt Excellence Mint Intense for a elevated cooling sensation with a subtle bittersweet note.
White Tea and Herbal Tea Pairings
Lindt Excellence 90% and Jasmine Tea
Our high-percentage cocoa chocolate pairs perfectly with a delicate jasmine tea. The latter's light and floral tones draw out the complexity of the dark chocolate and balance its rich depth.
Lindt Excellence 70% and Vanilla Tea
Lindt Excellence 70% has a delicate dark flavour with floral undertones and hints of vanilla. The subtle flavour of a vanilla tea beautifully enhances the flavours of the chocolate.
