This Organic Chai Dark Chocolate is an impeccably delicious example of precisely the sort of spiced flavor that we try to capture in our chocolates. The bar‰۪s base is our deeply rich 60% cacao dark chocolate, which has then been carefully infused with our masala chai blend, and brought to life with a touch of pure Madagascar vanilla bean. When allowed to melt on the tongue, the flavor profile of this luxurious bar alternates with both bold and subtle notes of spicy sweet ‰ÛÒbalanced out by the robust bitter sweetness of our dark cocoa blend. The bar‰۪s individual notes seem to quickly meld together into one mouth-watering flavor party, but nonetheless, try to indulge slowly and see if you can make out the gentle spiciness of ginger, the herbal bitter notes of black tea, the mellow heat of peppercorns, the herbal fragrance of cardamom, and the satisfying sweetness of true vanilla.
Handcrafted by our master chocolatier using only the finest organic cocoa beans, our chocolates strive to exceed the highest expectations in both quality and taste. We believe that the genuine flavor of the cocoa is what‰۪s important, so we keep our ingredients simple: a rich blend of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa fat, a touch of sweetness from pure organic cane sugar, and‰ÛÓin the case of our milk chocolates‰ÛÓwhole milk to create a silky mouth feel. These simple ingredients are then delicately infused with our own spices and herbs to create a uniquely irresistible taste. The resulting melt-in-your-mouth creations boast the perfect gourmet texture, a rich taste of cocoa, and a variety of complex flavor profiles that promise to satisfy both dedicated connoisseurs and periodic indulgers.
Chocolate, as we know it, is derived from the fatty seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Central and South America. Traditionally made into a bitter drink and celebrated by the Aztecs for its rich taste and medicinal properties, these seeds have played a role in Latin American cultures for thousands of years‰ÛÓwith its name literally translating to ‰ÛÏfood of the gods‰. Around 1500AD, European explorers began transporting cocoa beans back to Europe, where they soon took hold amongst the upper class. Over the years, the supplies and popularity of this divine fruit continued to increase, allowing it to spread its powerfully-delicious reach to almost every corner of the world.
The many health benefits that have now become associated with cocoa are due to its abundant load of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants‰ÛÓwith studies linking moderate cocoa consumption to a variety of benefits, ranging from increasing cardiovascular health to helping control blood pressure.
This bar‰۪s complex flavor profile comes from its combination of the rich bitterness of both dark cocoa and black tea, with a satisfying array of spicy notes and beautifully balanced sweetness ‰ÛÒcreating a chocolate that is truly a special treat to pair. First, try complimenting the richness of the dark cocoa by indulging alongside a glass of dessert wine, or a sweetened cappuccino. Better yet, try accentuating the chocolates novel spicy notes by incorporating it into any cinnamon or ginger themed baked good ‰ÛÒlike grating over the top of spiced cake, or apple pie! And while we know some purists would call this blasphemy, we‰۪ve also created some truly drool-worthy S‰۪mores using this particular chocolate in place of the lifeless ‰ÛÏtraditional‰ milk chocolate. From bacon to peanut butter, you really can‰۪t go wrong with this deliciously spiced chocolate so experiment with your favorite ingredients, mix and match flavors, and let us know what‰۪s your favorite!
