Author Notes: I have made these vegan and gluten free truffles infused with a black ahmad tea bag to ring in the new year. These truffles are incredibly flavorful and rich. Rose and ahmad tea are flavors which are part of everyday life in Iran and eating these bring back some amazing memories. Happy New Year everyone! sabrina
