n this Fu Wan gift set:
Taiwan # 1 Ping Tung 62% – the chocolate that was awarded as the best in the world at the world final of the International Chocolate Awards 2019.
Lychee Chocolate – dark chocolate (70%) with lychee.
Cocoa tea – five tea bags with cocoa tea.
A nice introduction to the beauty of Taiwan. Fu Wan works entirely in Taiwan and uses only cocoa from Taiwan. They work in direct collaboration with local cocoa farmers. And they do this progressively, their efforts have been rewarded with many awards, including the ‘best in competition’ for the best dark chocolate 2019 at the International Chocolate Awards. Does not say everything, those awards, but does indicate that Fu Wan’s efforts for quality cocoa in Taiwan are rewarded.
The gift set gives a nice first introduction, certainly because the lychee chocolate and the cocoa tea in addition to the Ping Tung # 1 give a completely different way of getting to know this maker, the cocoa, and the location. Fu Wan makes more chocolates with tea, and also with a number of other local additives. That is why it is nice that in their ‘signature set’ they not only opt for their pure origin chocolates, but also offer tea and local additions.
