Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Tea Theme Week.

Today's "In the Mood?" filled chocolate was one of a 6-piece Tea Collection assortment box from Patricia's Chocolate (Grand Haven, Michigan). And the tea in this chocolate was more of a floral, berry and herbal blend.

Aroma notes for this filled chocolate included: sweet chocolate, diffuse floral (rose), mixed herbal/botanical, very subtle berry and very faint tea.

The dark chocolate outer shell was flavorful (relatively bold and well balanced cocoa) and had a "just right" thickness (thin, but thick enough to securely surround a creamy ganache (filling).

The filling components included a complex blend of diffuse fruit (berry), floral and herbal/botanical flavors. There was also a light, lingering rose note in the finish. The more bold/darker chocolate couverture helped balance the sweetness in this chocolate.

Maker's notes: "Dark couverture infused with partridge berry, rose hips, passion flower, ginger and rose. The cream is also steeped with damiana and muira pauma bark, both potent aphrodisiacs, and so the name of this most extraordinary and delectible treat." 

Ingredients: (Ingredients listed on box, were for all six (different) chocolates. So it was difficult to determine the exact list for each individual chocolate.)

Allergen-related information: Allergen-related information: Ganache fillings contain dairy (heavy cream, unsalted butter). Some flavors may contain traces of nuts. Contact Patricia's Chocolates for more detailed information.
