The first rumored occurrence of chocolate addiction is said to have been during the ancient Mayan civilization sometime around 400AD. The Mayans were the first to process the confection and called it 'xocoatl', from which the English term 'chocolate' is derived. Originally chocolate was consumed in beverage form, not solid form.
The invention of chocolate mousse is generally credited to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who was a famous French painter, noted lover of chocolate and fresh cream. Henri decided one day he was going to combine his favourite foods together with a bit of sugar and voilà! Chocolate mousse was born! However, it was Toulouse-Lautrec's friend, Aristide Bruant - also a chocolate lover, who gave him the idea to make a white chocolate version of his dessert invention. Toulouse agreed and thus a second mousse was made, White chocolate mousse!
Sweet, creamy, velvety, and of course chocolatey are words used to describe not only Toulouse-Lautrec's culinary inventions, but also our White Chocolate Mousse flavoured black tea!
