Earl Grey Tea Chocolate - Rococo Chocolate
So Shines a Good Deed in a Weary World
Those of you with a keen memory will recall that I am a fan of the tea-infused chocolates they sell in the Mallorca café chain in Spain. Because of this, a thoughtful person with said type of memory and a kind heart to boot sent me a bar of Ear Grey Tea dark chocolate by Rococo Chocolates.
Rococo Chocolates was started in 1983 by Chantal Cody. She set up her first shop in the King's Road, Chelsea, London. Chantal describes the image of the brand as eighteenth-century-meets-punk. Over thirty years later, Rococo has four shops and Chantal has a very well deserved OBE — the first for a chocolatier. Chantal remains committed to her aim of providing the best 'couture chocolate'.
The chocolate was utterly delicious. Sincere thanks for this thoughtful gift.
Chocolate to Read Commando By
Tasting Note: I paired the chocolate with a cheeky copy of Commando's Too Old to Fight (above and below), the smoothness of the chocolate complementing the tale of valour perfectly.
I won't give too much away, but what I can tell you is that you're never too old for anything. And that Regimental-Sergeant Major Burnham Bulworth VC has a splendid moustache.
I hereby award the chocolate a VGC — Very Good Chocolate.
