Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Africa Theme Weeks. This week we're in Tanzania.
Today's 70% Cacao Tanzania bar was crafted by The Smooth Chocolator (Australia).
The maker's tasting notes on the packaging read: sour cherry, rose, coffee. My tasting notes were similar: plum, sour cherry, chocolate with a not unpleasant, subtle bittersweet roasted coffee note in the finish.
The packaging was simple, yet elegant, and the bar's design included representations of cacao fruit (cocoa pods).
