Tea flavored chocolate bars?

Besides the Vosges matcha tea one? I'm hoping for oolong or black.

  1. I know this will sound hopelessly un-cool, but: what about tea when you want tea and chocolate when you want chocolate?

      I only frown on flavored tea, not on tea-flavored food.

    2. I've had pretty good luck finding various chocolates at The Curious Palate on Venice Blvd in Mar Vista. I am normally more like as RicRios prefers - tea and chocolate separated in distinct categories. But I have seen some chocolates there with very unique combinations, like chile hazelnut, mango masala, blackberry sage, and orange cardamom. You might try calling to see if they offer any chocolates infused with teas other than green tea, which I do recall seeing as well.

        Yup... I think they have one with Assam in it...


      2. Jin Patisserie makes earl grey, and several other tea flavors.

          lovely, but I want bars. it's a small gift. Anything from Jin would be too much.

            I've gotten tea flavored bars from Whole Foods before. Not sure what their stock situation is now, but I know that at least the 3rd and Fairfax branch has a pretty kickin' chocolate selection, and if you're in the area and that doesn't work there's M. Marcel and a couple chocolate places across the street in the Farmer's Market. Good luck!

          1. I miss those matcha tea-flavored Kit Kats we found in Japan.... Anyone know if those are available in L.A.?

              Occassionally they show up at Mitsuwa in fun size packs.

                Although I can't be specific, Nijiya Market (on Sawtelle and elsewhere) also seems to carry quite a few cookies and candies that I don't see elsewhere.
