All of the chocolate bars are made with 70% dark chocolate (you can see how I might have to wait for just the right group who likes 70% dark chocolate) and each chocolate bar has an interesting flavour combination. In the bottom layer (yes, there are two layers of chocolate bars in this box!) I found a chocolate bar called "kashmir", a Masala Chai flavoured dark chocolate. And since I seem to be on a roll lately with eating chocolate that tastes like tea, I thought I would give this one a try and see how it compared while the others are still fresh in my mind.
The TeaRoom's milk chocolate Masala Chai-flavoured chocolate bar. Organic Fair's chocolate bar was bitter and made you think of a bitter cup of tea with no milk or sugar, rather than a milky chocolate-chai latte as The TeaRoom's chocolate bar had tasted to me.
Overall, it was a good flavour for when you are craving bitter chocolate and Masala Chai tea. But if you are in the mood for a sweet snack, this one is not it.
Organic Fair's chocolate is organic and 1% of their sales go to support and develop direct fair trade (learn more at: www.directfairtrade.org). An additional 1% of sales support environmental organizations worldwide (www.onepercentfortheplanet.org). Their packaging is also environmentally friendly, so there are a lot of great reasons to check out this Canadian company! See below for their details and website info. If you know someone who really likes flavoured 70% organic dark chocolate, I highly recommend the Consummate Connoisseur's Chocolate Gift Box available on their web site.
