This Organic Jasmine Milk Chocolate delicately infuses the silky smoothness of our milk chocolate with the subtle sweetness of our jasmine green tea. The secret to this blends powerfully enchanting fragrance is its utilization of the indulgent jasmine blossoms. These flowers are handpicked during peak season and carefully dried to preserve their delicate properties, before being carefully mixed with tender green tea leaves ‰ÛÒwhich are then used to infuse our luxurious milk chocolate. To put it simply, there‰۪s a reason this is the most popular flower scented tea in East Asia, and it‰۪s the same reason that we decided to use it to craft this bar. Now we know it may be hard to resist noshing these lusciously sweet treasures by the handful, but this is one chocolate creation that truly benefits from letting each piece slowly melt on the tongue ‰ÛÒenabling the beautiful flavors and aromas to truly fixate your senses.
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.
For this particular chocolate the well-balanced sweetness of the milk chocolate is perfectly complimented by the floral sweet notes of our jasmine tea resulting in a flavor that pairs best with foods of unsweetened or slightly bitter nature. Some classic examples of this would be matching each bite with a taste of straight espresso, a few kettle-cooked potato chips, or a sip of bone-dry wine. If you're a fan of more unorthodox pairings, the subtle flavors and bold mouth feel of your favorite cheese can act as the perfect vehicle to carry this bars uniquely sweet floral notes. Try simply topping a bit of cheese with a chunk of the chocolate, or better yet, try shaving it over a bowl of cottage cheese with fruit. Though it should be noted that, despite the amplified deliciousness that each of the aforementioned combinations offer, we find it pairs equally well with smiles and friends.
