Introducing… Bird & Blend’s edible tea infused chocolate Easter egg, made in partnership with local independent chocolatiers Only Coco. Of course, we have ensured it is super planet friendly too, Chief Mixologist Krisi tells us more...
“Did you know that each year, more than 8,000 tonnes of waste is generated just from Easter egg packaging and cards alone?
Long standing fans will know we have been doing a card eco Easter egg for a few years now, filled with our Easter tea bags, to provide a planet friendly alternative Easter treat for our customers. Last year we introduced them in tea infused chocolate form & you Teabirds went crackers! But this year they’re back with a BANG!
We’re lucky to work with Only Coco on our eggs- a small independent artisan chocolate company based not far from us in Brighton. Only Coco’s chocolate is artisan, natural, and handmade in small batches, so you know it’s going to be good! They asked us if they could try infusing our tea into their chocolate and the result was truly magical!
When it came to this challenge the team at Only Coco have been absolutely fantastic, working tirelessly to find us the right recipe. For our Easter Egg debut in 2021, we had one dark chocolate egg and one milk chocolate egg, both infused with our Hot Cross Bun tea blend. This year we’ve gone a few steps further, with three decadent flavours to choose from for the ulTEAmate Easter treat:
Please be reassured that I have been diligently taste testing each step of the way along with our tea infused chocolate bars - which are delicious might I add, and this year we have a limited edition Easter Hot Cross Bun Chocolate Bar!
It was also important that the egg remained eco friendly, and plastic-free this year as well.
Be warned, we only created a limited run of these (to ensure no waste!) so you’d better be super quick to catch one - that's if I haven't eaten them all first!”
