  • Description

    Fossa, a cat-like mammal indigenous to Madagascar, roams the forests of the island hunting both day and night. The fossa is of the same origin of the craft chocolate that Yilina and Jay first tasted years ago that inspired their chocolate journey. Yilina and Jay’s first taste of craft chocolate was a Madagascan dark bar, they were instantly hit by wonderful flavours of refreshingly tart raspberries and warm almonds. This moment opened the pair’s eyes to how craft chocolates can have such flavour clarity – so different from the normal mass-produced industrial chocolate they grew up with.

    This a limited release bar crafted by Fossa in collaboration with rare tea curator – Pekoe & Imp.

    Mi Lan Xiang (Honey Orchid) is a dancong tea cultivated in the Phoenix Mountain of Guangdong Province.

    This lot was hand-harvested from Zhen Ya village in Spring 2010. Made into a Hongcha (western black tea) and further aged for eight years, this tea is incredibly smooth and creamy with very low astringence. It has a characteristic lychee fragrance and red date sweetness. Complemented by the biscuity Kokoa Kamili cacao from Tanzania, it is a delicious bar to be slowly savoured.

    Tasting Notes

    This is a beautifully creamy and aromatic milk chocolate. Expect the tropical flavours of lychee sweetness with a biscuity undertone of the Kokoa Kamili cacao.

      A perfect tea flavoured chocolate in my opinion. A gentle tea flavour with creamy notes.

      Amazing. I got a really nice light tea flavour and then was hit with a strong, luscious honey note.
