Gyokuro Gokou + Solomon Islands Milk 58%


Gyokuro and chocolate set paired by our Certified Tea Master.

Includes 1 × 50g of Gyokuro Gokou and 1 × 50g bar of Solomon Islands Milk 58%.

This pairing was selected by our Certified Tea Master. For best results, try preparing your Gyokuro as a cold-brew, or an extended warm water infusion. The unctuous mouthfeel of the tea liquor is pleasantly ‘cut’ by the intense sweetness of the chocolate. Meanwhile, the cocoa being smooth and fruity, complements the vegetal and umami notes without becoming overwhelmed by them.
