Mother’s Day Tea and Truffles

We’re very excited about a very special Mothers Day event — Tea and Truffles!


Not only can you treat your mom (or your kids can treat you!) to some wonderful hand-dipped truffles and fair-trade organic tea, but you can also get a sneak peak at the new Kakao shop!


Kakao Chocolate and our friends Traveling Tea will host a special Tea and Chocolate Tasting on Mother’s Day at our upcoming new location of Kakao Chocolate, 2301 S. Jefferson, St. Louis, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


(“Upcoming new location” means that we’re moving there, but we won’t be completely moved in by the time of this tasting. Don’t worry, we’ll have lots of tables and chairs, and plenty of chocolate and tea. We just won’t have all our chocolating equipment moved in yet.)


We’ll offer selections of all-natural, hand-dipped truffles in an assortment of tea flavors, including Chai Tea with Cinnamon, Earl Grey Tea with Orange Sugar, Mint Tea with Candied Lemon Peel, and Rose Petal Red Tea. Traveling Tea selections will include Earl Grey White Tip, “Meeting of the Mints,” Honey Rose, Chai and others.


Tea and Truffle pairings include two truffles and a cup of tea for $5, or three truffles and two cups of tea for $7. Individual and packaged truffles, as well as packaged tea, will be available for sale.
