Christine Eats Tippsy Tea Time Truffles

I was in Whole Foods picking up some Celestial Seasonings Kombucha Energy Shots when I spotted an inviting pink box of tea and liquor infused truffles. They were rather expensive but what is life without the occasional indulgence? Right off the bat I loved the snazzy polka dot patterns and fun colors. The flavors that were included in my box from left to right are:

Milk Chocolate Chamomile Tea and Honey Jack Daniels

White Chocolate English Breakfast Tea and Whiskey

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Tea and Bailey's Irish Cream

These were unbelievably decadent. The ganache in the centers was super creamy but not too sweet. My favorite of the three was the white chocolate truffle. The tea was just barely detectable but it makes a great excuse to eat chocolate. All of the flavors complimented each other really well. Even my non-tea loving boyfriend (still working on that) agreed that they were delicious. These would make a really sweet gift for a tea loving friend. If I see them again, I might just have to buy more. I don't see the tea infused flavors listed on her website but I've tweeted Christine Eats to see if they still make them. I'll update once I hear back.
