As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, the Teamore team wants to help make that day taste a little sweeter for everyone. Whether as a Valentine for yourself, a friend, coworker, or a loved one, nothing is more universal than a little chocolate to pair with our signature teas.

Tea and chocolate has a rich history: of the world’s three most popular beverages, which are tea, coffee, and cocoa, had been cocoa that was the first to be introduced by the Spanish to Europe in 1528. Tea followed only a century later, when the Dutch traders brought tea to Europe.

Initially, only the wealthiest families could afford these new, exotic beverages. Thus, it was only towards the end of 17th century that coffee shops appeared in cities such as London, New York, and Boston; here, tea, coffee, and cocoa were offered to customers of more diverse walks of life. Ever since then, chocolate and tea have been a delicious staple in the lives of people.

Thus, this Valentine’s Day, why not indulge in a little bit of tradition and try some of our chocolate and tea pairings? We gathered a variety of delicious European chocolates and came up with a few pairing suggestions with teas that will really complement the flavors.
