Our Tonka beans come from northern Brazil, where farmers pick them up and prepare them once they’ve fallen off the Brazilian Teak tree. The aroma of grated Tonka bean is enchanting: almond, vanilla, woodruff and fresh hay blended with fruity, spicy notes. Suitable for desserts? Definitely. And for cocktails, savoury dishes and pastry, too. Sprinkle Tonka shavings on Irish Coffee. Use it in chocolate truffles or crème brûlée alongside sweet fruits like strawberry and apricots. A small amount is enough to add that delicious, subtle taste.
Flavour: Aromatic, fruity, slightly spicy
Ideal for: desserts, cocktails, Irish coffee, chocolate truffles
