I made these after several friends suggested them. Earl grey seems to be a popular flavour, and why wouldn’t it be, with its sweet citrus aroma and comforting tea taste.
The truffles are quite soft in the middle, so had to be double-dipped to ensure the earl grey centre is properly encased in a protective chocolate shell. The flavour is delicate, presenting itself more towards the end. It’s difficult to get a strong flavour with tea ganaches. I enjoyed making these so much – from making a strong brew, to forming balls of ganache, to hand-rolling these and getting very messy in the process… The truffles came out rather bigger than I’d intended, but in my book that’s no bad thing 🙂
