Break or chop the chocolate into pieces and melt in a low oven (see Melting chocolate). When melted, make the tea in a tea pot using the boiling water. Let it stand for 2 minutes, but it must not stew! Make the ganache by adding the tea to the chocolate spoonful by spoonful. It will thicken quickly at first, but it should become a smooth mixture when all the tea is mixed in (see making a ganache). Stir in the orange flower water, if using. Put into 6 small tea cups or glasses and chill for a few hours. Serve with cream or crème fraîche if you want.
