Chocolate truffles with tea and fresh basil? Yes!
Unusual as that combination may sound, it works surprisingly well to create a delicious, creamy truffle with hints of herby flavour. Think about it this way — we don't hesitate to pair chocolate and mint. Basil isn't all that far off in flavour, lending a pepperiness that acts as the perfect foil to the richness of the chocolate. And the tea — which pairs so well with sweets — lends a depth of flavour that ties everything together.
