Today's Blueberry Rooibos Tea 70% (bar) was from Tabal Chocolate (Wauwatosa, WI). Tabal's chocolate maker(s) infuse organic teas* and superfoods into their craft, stone-ground, small batch chocolate bars and other offerings.
Today's blueberry dark bar was suffused with Blueberry Rooibos (tea), an organic, caffeine-free herbal blend from Rishi Tea (Milwaukee, WI).
This chocolate had a sweet berry and light herbal aroma and blueberry flavor. The tea made for an enjoyable, uplifting, natural-tasting fruity blend experience.
The chocolate was made using sustainably sourced (direct trade) cacao grown in the Santander region of Colombia (South America). It was difficult to pick out flavor notes (fruit, green, nut?) the cacao was contributing, as the chocolate was redolent with tea. However, the pairing seemed quite complementary and well-balanced.
The finish lingered in a pleasant way with a tiny throat tickle (mild astringency).
Tabal's Blueberry Rooibos chocolate bar was gluten free, vegan and soy free (as are their other bars we've tried.)
*Other tea-infused Tabal Chocolate bar flavors include/or have included in the past: Peppermint Rooibos, Vanilla Bean Black Tea, Chai Masala and Teahouse Matcha.
