Tea Rose, our newest cheese, beckons the eye with an impressionist’s palette of Spring and Summer color. The allure of this fresh, lactic cheese is far more than a lovely face. Fragrant herbs, flower petals, and a touch of fennel pollen subtly compliment the light, delicate paste of Capriole’s fresh, bright chevre to evoke the spirit of the season—fields, flowers, and new beginnings.

We think this cheese was made for flowery honeys--from orange blossom to lavender, clover, and acacia. Light citrusy, white wines like Vouvray, unoaked Chardonnay, and sparkling Blanc de Blanc are a lovely match. Most interesting we think, are the possible pairings with tea, tisanes, and light gin cocktails.
Store your fresh, vacuum-packed chevre at <41°. Once opened, rewrap tightly in plastic wrap and store at <41°. Allow to come to room temperature before serving. Since this is a fresh chevre, it is meant to be eaten as fresh as possible. Herbs and flowers may fade with time and light so enjoy when young
