Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Thailand Theme Week.

Today's Chiang Mai Origin 70% dark chocolate (bar) was from KanVela Chocolate (Thailand). The company has been making bean-to-bar and tree-to-bar chocolate since 2018. 

The cacao used to make this bar was grown in Chiang Mai Province in northern Thailand, north of Bangkok.

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate (smooth, complex), faint fruit, nut, sweet green, warm spice, and very faint, balanced earth.

Flavor notes for this well-tempered bar included: dark chocolate (brownie, ganache) with faint (diffuse) fruit; nut; sweet green; warm spice; and very faint, well balanced earth. Flavor notes were very similar to the aroma, just more chocolate-y and delicious.

I appreciated the well-balanced, well-executed, complex aroma and flavor notes in this bar.

Ingredients: Cacao Nib 65%, Sugar 30%, Cocoa butter 5% 

Allergen-related information:  "Made in a facility that processes milk, wheat, sesame, soy and tree nuts."
