Earl Grey Truffle Gift Set

Beautifully presented in a H.R. Higgins gift box, this set will be accompanied with full tasting notes.
You can join Tony and David Higgins for a full guided tasting on our YouTube Channel.
Earl Grey is a unique and refreshing tea, combining malty black China tea with beautiful citrusy notes of Calabrian Bergamot.
We have chosen to pair this with a Lemongrass and Hint of Lime Velvet Praline.
The infusion of lemongrass and vanilla with a touch of lime in the Velvet Praline sets off the aromatic bergamot and citrus notes in the tea.
The hazelnut praline works alongside the malty nuttiness of the black tea leaves to give a nutty hit before it is taken over by citrus. The subtle lemongrass adds warmth and spice.
*Please note that all truffles are hand made to order. Orders for truffles placed by Wednesday each week will be shipped to you on the Friday of the following week.
I am often asked “Mr Higgins, which is your favourite coffee?”
That question takes me all the way back to when I first Joined the company. Then I was the most junior member of staff. Though I had worked in the business before leaving school and for as long as I could remember, I was the new boy, a trainee.
