Scald cream and butter in a small heavy saucepan and stir in tea leaves. Remove from heat and allow to infuse for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop the chocolate finely and transfer to a bowl. Remove the tea leaves from the cream with a sieve and pour cream onto chocolate so that it melts. whisk until smooth. Chill the ganache, covered with cling film, until firm but pliable- about 2 hours.

Spoon level teaspoons of ganache onto a baking sheet. Put cocoa in a bowl, then dust your palmswith it lightly.

Roll each piece of ganache into a ball (wash your hands and redust as they become sticky). Drop several balls at a time into the bowl of cocoa and turn to coat.

Transfer as coated to an airtight container, separated with layers of wax paper.
