Premium Swiss chocolate brand Lindt has unveiled three new cherry blossom inspired drinks arriving at the Lind Chocolat Cafe on February 16: the Lindt White Chocolate Sakura Ice Drink, Lindt Delice Sakura and Lindt Sakura Leaf.
The beverages will be followed up by two desserts on March 1: the Lindt Dome Chocolat Sakura and Lindt Chocolat Parfait Sakura. These will be served at the Ginza branch while only the parfait will be sold at the Jiyūgaoka branch.
Lindt White Chocolate Sakura Ice Drink: Ginza Branch Eat-In – ¥1,388 (Tax Included) / Other Branches Take Out – ¥772 (Tax Included)
This sweet drink brings together the sweetness of Lindt’s creamy white chocolate and the sourness of cherries. The cherries used are Amarena cherries which are bitter and slightly nutty and sour Griotte cherries. These blended with the white chocolate give a refreshing aftertaste.
The drink is topped with cream cheese and whipped cream in which sits salt-pickled cherry blossom leaves. The sweet and sour flavours of the drink and cherries are elevated by the light and fluffy cream and the distinct saltiness of the leaves.
Lindt Delice Sakura / Lindt Delice Sakura Leaf: ¥302 Each (Tax Included)
Lindt’s popular Delices are macarons crafted by the company’s expert chocolatiers who stuff them with ganache made from Lindt chocolate. The springtime Sakura and Sakura Leaf versions are available for a limited time only and are packed with cherry blossom flavour and fragrance.
Lindt Dome Chocolat Sakura: ¥1,890 (Tax Included)
Lindt has beautifully created a milky and mellow-tasting white chocolate dome which comes to life when a hot sauce is poured over it. This beautiful pale green sauce has a faint salty flavour to it and together with the unique flavour of the cherry blossom leaf. Enjoy watching the chocolate dome melt before your very eyes to reveal the inside dessert. This special treat can only be experience at the cafe. Check out below what happens when you drizzle on the sauce.
Your dish is also served with berry powder made to look like a fully bloomed cherry blossom. Inside the dessert is a tower of biscuit, cherry blossom white chocolate semifreddo, cherry compote, salt-pickled cherry blossom leaf whipped cream, and crunchy hazelnuts.
Lindt Chocolat Parfait Sakura: ¥1,780 (Tax Included)
Lindt’s new parfait combines chocolate with ingredients perfect for the spring. The deeper you go in the dessert the more textures you can enjoy which come together in delicious harmony. It even comes decorated with a Delice Sakura Leaf.
Starting at the bottom of the glass the parfait contains crunchy hazelnuts, vanilla mascarpone mousse, cherry compote, white chocolate ice cream, and cherry sauce. It’s topped with cherry blossom white chocolate ice cream, more cherry compote, a mini Delice Sakura Leaf, a white chocolate piece with strawberry powder in it, and another piece of white chocolate displaying the Lindt logo.
Feel the early spring calling with these cherry blossom treats at the Lindt Chocolat Cafe.
