A nice set in which you can taste 3 chocolates from Fu Wan from Taiwan – and not just three chocolates.
They are three dark chocolates with a cocoa percentage of 70% and cocoa from Taiwan. The (very) special thing about it is that the cocoa is fermented very specifically after harvesting. Where cocoa normally has a ‘wild’ fermentation – three different yeasts are now added (a specific brewer’s yeast, red wine yeast and strawberry brewer’s yeast) that ensure that the cocoa develops very different flavors, which you can definitely taste in the chocolate.
Extra special, we can rightly say and very nice if you have already tasted a lot of chocolate and are looking for something even more special. Perfect for (advanced) chocolate tasting, if you want to learn more about how cocoa fermentation works and how the taste of chocolate is created (and how diverse this can be) and also if you just want to try Fu Wan’s award-winning chocolates.
The chocolates have a somewhat grainier/coarsely ground structure than some very finely ground chocolates (to which a lot of cocoa butter may also have been added) from our range. We don’t mind that – it’s a style choice and in our opinion makes the many flavors in the chocolate easier to discover (the late Tibor Szanto also had a characteristic just a bit grainy style of chocolate) – but some people like it better when everything melts easier and you don’t want to encounter a single grain. If you let chocolate melt nicely in your mouth, the difference between very creamy or somewhat grainy is already less – in terms of taste – and only the difference in mouth feel remains. You like that, you don’t like that. Fans of Taza (very rough) will find Fu Wan’s chocolates very ‘not so bad’ – others will say boy, that’s a bit on the coarse side. But they will also say: what a beautiful set of chocolates and what interesting things I taste. At least we hope (and think we do).
What the makers say about the three chocolates in this set:
“70% strawberry brewer’s yeast chocolate
