When the mercury drops and the shorter days take on a heightened sense of urgency, there’s nothing quite as comforting as a well earned tea break. Especially when the tea in question combines the very best of its caffeine-added counterpart to ratchet up the indulgence factor a couple of notches.
This winter, embrace the chill and cosy up with EXCELLENCE and red espresso® - an indulgent pairing perfectly suited to cooler days and icy evenings. Made using caffeine-free Rooibos tea and refined into a full-bodied espresso format, red espresso® is an ideal match for the intensity of EXCELLENCE, elevating its dark and decadent undertones to create an utterly indulgent and deeply satisfying tasting experience.
So whether you’re in the mood for a quick time-out or in need of a lengthy decompression after a long day at work, our LINDT Master Chocolatiers’ red espresso® and EXCELLENCE pairing picks are sure to give you a good reason to love winter.
EXCELLENCE Mild 70% and instant red cappuccino®
This creamy and decadent instant treat is perfectly complemented by the smooth and refined taste of EXCELLENCE Mild 70%. A beautiful symphony of understated flavour profiles, both of which are subtly elevated by one another, this mild match-up is perfect for an instant pick-me-up.
EXCELLENCE Roasted Hazelnut and chai red latte®
A pairing characterised by its strong aromas and textures, this bold and spicy coupling makes the perfect balm for those icy evenings, and is best enjoyed alongside a roaring fire. A powerful blend of rooibos and traditional Indian spices, the chai red latte®s complex flavours are further enhanced by the rich nuttiness of the chocolate, which deepens the tea’s intense undertones to dramatic and decadent effect.
EXCELLENCE Orange Intense and red cappuccino®
Rich, creamy and intensely comforting, the red cappuccino®s natural characteristics are brought to the fore when paired with EXCELLENCE Orange Intense. Subtle hints of orange zest ignite the tea’s natural notes, elevating its aromatic properties to create a wonderfully soothing and intensely satisfying crescendo of flavour, perfectly finished off with the delicate crunch of the chocolate’s characteristic almond flecks.
