Virtual Milk & Dark Chocolate Tasting with Cocoa Runners

29 March, 2021 at 8pm–9pm
Order your chocolate tasting box for £19.95

Join the delicious Cocoa Runners for a Chelsea Physic Garden Virtual Chocolate Tasting.

This special tasting is in support of our fundraising campaign ‘The Hothouse Challenge’, aiming to raise the final £1 million to help restore their historic glasshouses, where you can find Theobroma Cacao within the Tropical Corridor. With every one of these Chelsea Physic Garden-inspired kits sold, 15% will be donated towards The Hothouse Challenge, and for every £100 we raise the John Browne Charitable Trust will also donate another £100.

What to expect:

During the tasting, the team at Cocoa Runners will take you through how to taste chocolate, how to understand the difference between taste and flavour, a bit of the history of chocolate, and why Craft Chocolate is better for you and better for the planet. They’ll also offer advice on how to read a chocolate label, and why it’s so important to know exactly where the beans were grown and exactly where the bar was made. For this tasting, they will also explore the history and medical properties of chocolate, and discuss Chelsea Physic Garden’s benefactor, Sir Hans Sloane, and how his name was synonymous with drinking chocolate and its commercial success in Europe.
