Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate, Plants and Herbs Theme Week.
Today's Metsa (bar) from Goodio Craft Chocolate (Helsinki, Finland) was chocolate topped with birch leaves and forest crystals.
The aroma and flavor had slight bitter dark chocolate and faint herbal flavor notes, respectively. The dark chocolate (made with Arriba cacao) tasted slightly darker than 70 percent.
Seeing the term "forest crystals" was delightfully intriguing. What might this peaceful field of green bits adorning this bar be? The forest crystals/inclusions included tiny pieces of green birch leaves, birch sugar crystals and powdered organic spruce sprouts "collected near the Arctic circle."
Among the faintly herbal forest flavors, were periodic delicate citrus/floral pine notes.
A light sprinkling of birch sugar crystals added some botanical sugar sparkle and slight crunchy texture.
