Camellia and orange ganache

The flower of the camellia plant is known for its fine aromas, loved all over the world in tea infusions. Teas like these pair extremely well with dark chocolate. In this recipe, we even combine it with a mix of dark 811 and the very dark, Power 80 chocolate. The addition of the tea brings out exciting floral notes. The sweet hints of orange and Cointreau give it a nice warm and sunny touch.
