Our Story

Please drop in to say ‘Hi’ to Cindy and Steve!

For Cindy Walker, coming back to Ingersoll, Ontario, where she was born and raised made a lot of sense. Home is where the heart is most definitely, but being a professional chocolatier in Oxford County also meant she could surround herself with what inspires her – whether it’s the local arts scene or the beautiful farms and orchards nearby.

She is proud to feature local ingredients, from fresh cream to maple syrup, honey, beer and fresh seasonal fruit, in her chocolates They not only taste better, but it’s a wonderful way to showcase the best of the region and show her support of other small businesses.

When Cindy and her husband Steve came back to Ingersoll, they had a dream to create something truly special with broad appeal. Artisan chocolate and premium teas were the answers – two avenues in which they could demonstrate their love for all things delicious.

Over the three years she has owned and operated Chocolatea downtown, her customers have come to appreciate the meticulous care and passion that go into everything she offers. She prefers to take an Old World approach to her chocolate. Each one is crafted by hand in small batches without using any preservatives. It’s an approach that has won her loyal clients near and far.

In an elegant shop, Cindy and Steve have put together a well-curated selection of the very finest teas from suppliers who truly stand behind the words “ethically traded.” As graduates from the tea sommelier certification program at Fanshawe College, they have the knowledge to help customers choose perfect teas based on their taste preferences. Every variety of tea available in store has been sampled and approved by the couple before it reaches the shelves at Chocolatea.

What’s in store? Please drop in to say hi to Cindy and Steve and find out. They’ll introduce you to some wonderfully unique chocolates and teas, sure to bring a smile to your face.

Our Mission

Chocolatea continually seeks out new flavour combinations with its Ethically Traded Tea Products and Premium Chocolate to produce a taste experience customers will enjoy.

Our passion is driven by the desire to surpass expectations and customer satisfaction. We strive to achieve the sparkle in the eye and a “mmmm” on the tip of the tongue when customers try our chocolates or drink our teas.

Quality, Pride and Freshness with local ingredients when possible are factors when deciding on which Chocolates to make and Teas to purchase.




Tips for the best experience

tea and chocolate

It is best to consume the chocolates within 2 (two) weeks of purchase.

To enhance the quality of the chocolates, storage should be in a cool and dry location, avoiding direct sunlight.

We strongly recommend that the chocolates are not stored in the refrigerator or the freezer. The flavor and texture is best appreciated at room temperature (70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit).

Tea can go stale without proper care and should be stored in an airtight container where it is shielded from both heat and sunlight.
