Brand Snapshot | Charbonnel et Walker’s English Afternoon Tea Truffles
Established in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is Britain’s first luxury chocolatier. A creative partnership between Madame Charbonnel et Mrs Walker, Charbonnel et Walker are renowned for their chocolates and truffles, many of which are still made to traditional recipes of Madame Charbonnel and presented in beautiful gift boxes.
New from Charbonnel et Walker, their English Afternoon Tea Truffle is a delicate and quintessentially British flavour.
A milk and white chocolate truffle is infused with the beautiful flavour of Bergamot and lightly dusted with cocoa powder. The sweetness of the milk and white chocolate is perfectly balanced with a hint of Earl Grey from the Bergamot oil.
Afternoon Tea was first introduced in England in the mid-19th Century. Attributed to the Duchess of Bedford, she was rumoured to find the long stretch between lunch and the evening meal difficult to endure without a snack in between!
