My awesome husband went for a meeting in town the other day and arrived home with the most amazing treat (after a bit of not so subtle hinting). A box of handmade chocolates from Savoy Tea. I mentioned it in my post here about the delightful little bijou tea shop in The Savoy Hotel. Inspired by London's Edwardian shopping arcades, the walls are covered in a fabric whose design hints at the Asian origins of tea. It offers a wide variety of beautifully packaged Savoy teas, bespoke tea accessories such at the hotel's own china tea service, handmade jams, biscuits and fresh patisserie. You can also see the hotel's pastry chefs and chocolatiers at work as they put the finishing touches to the beautiful cakes and confectionery.
The chocolates, as you can see, were almost too beautiful to eat, I did manage it though. Delicious cocoa and subtle flavours fused together formed the smoothest melt in the mouth chocolate that only handmade chocolate can produce. I am a huge chocoholic and these really hit the spot, ensconced in the most sumptuous black packaging. Don't get me wrong a surprise box of Milk Tray is never disappointing, but there's something about a box of handmade chocolates that makes them taste all the more divine.
