Alma’s Toasted Milk with Assam Tea Caramel

Using intriguing ingredients and a true passion for exploring the possibilities of chocolate, Alma’s Sarah Hart captures collaborative culinary stories from around the Pacific Northwest in her innovative small-batch truffles and bars. We teamed up with the flavor hunter to turn her recent bon bon collaboration with Portland’s Smith Teamaker into an elegant ice cream tribute to afternoon tea. A ribbon of assam tea caramel is laced through a slightly smoky ice cream made by toasting milk powder and combining with sea salt, accented by curls of chocolate mimicking the delicate shell of bon bons in every bite.
