Chef Rhea Castro Sycip of Flour Pot Manila unveils her latest and most elegant creation yet, the Earl Grey, Orange and Chocolate Tea Cake just in time for Mother's Day. In a creative collaboration with Steuarts Tea Philippines, Chef Rhea Castro Sycip of Flour Pot Manila elevates the cake experience to a whole new level of indulgence with a medley of opulent richness and nuanced notes from the tea, orange and chocolate blend. A cup of tea and a slice of cake? Yes, please... 

Chef Rhea Castro Sycip is one of the metro's true visionaries when it comes to small batch artisan cakes bannered by her popular Rum and Naked Cakes at Flour Pot Manila. Her inventive creative style and uncompromising commitment to quality using the finest ingredients are evident in every cake, slice and bite (for more on Flour Pot Manila, see my previous posts, Celebrating a Local Harvest with the Ubi Kinampay Cake by Flour Pot Manila on their seasonal creation, ECQ Eats: Up, Down, Sideways with the Classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake by Flour Pot Manila on their enduring and timeless bestseller and Indulgence Comes Humming Your Way with the Hummingbird Cake by Flour Pot Manila on one of their signature creations). This Mother's Day, Chef Rhea offers her most elegant creation yet with the Earl Grey, Orange and Chocolate Tea Cake.

Using premium quality free range eggs, farm-fresh cow's milk and organic butter, Chef Rhea tediously folds and steeps loose Earl Grey tea leaves from Steuarts Tea Philippines into the moist butter pound cake adding a subtle layer of floral and citrus hints. Chef Rhea then weaves the delicate sharpness of orange zest and the decadent sweetness of white chocolate from Auro Chocolates for a rich medley of elegant flavors to complement the light yet dense cake draped with her signature buttercream.

The combination of flavors sets this creation apart from the usual options, making this the perfect cake this coming Mother's Day. After all, she deserves only the very best right?

But Chef Rhea isn't done just yet. The lavish cake is then embellished with the freshest flowers in season along with rosemary, dried oranges and strawberries to complete the Earl Grey, Orange and Chocolate Tea Cake. It's an elegant and impressive cake, teasing the eyes before the palate.

Each creation by Chef Rhea is an expression and celebration of her passion and art for artisan cakes, lovingly handcrafted down to the minutest detail. That smile on your face after that first bite followed by a second completes the cycle that began with long hours in the kitchen at Flour Pot Manila.

And it's the perfect match with a soothing cup of tea. The dense and moist butter pound cake is the flavorful base delivering distinct yet delicate floral hints from the Earl Grey followed by the sweetness of the white chocolate in a seamless and balanced blend. The silky smooth buttercream then drapes the palate with a lingering richness for that perfect finishing touch. 

A sip of tea cleanses the palate, allowing you to taste all the flavorful layers from the Earl Grey, white chocolate and orange zest smoothened by the buttercream with each bite. The flavors are complex yet subtle and delicate at the same time in that elegant style of Chef Rhea. 

And this Mother's Day, the elegant Earl Grey, Orange and Chocolate Tea Cake is the perfect expression to celebrate mothers everywhere. After more than two years of the quarantine experience, it's time to celebrate milestones the proper way...

...with a cup of tea and a slice of cake in the company of family and friends. With Mother's Day just around the corner, it's a good idea to book your order early and avoid the rush.
