Slow Down & Savor
To enjoy chocolate like a pro, slow down and savor every bite. Use all your senses to get the full effect.
Smell: breathe in aroma. Can you smell citrus, berries, nuts, or something else? A large proportion of the flavor in chocolate comes from its smell!
Taste: Place your bite on your tongue, let it melt. Tasting chocolate is completely subjective; there’s no right or wrong.Take a moment to notice any initial flavors. High-quality cocoa beans allow for complex flavors that can be floral, earthy, even savory! Chew your piece slightly to try and dive deeper into the flavors. Ask yourself if you notice any additional undertones? Are there fruity notes like blackberries or coconut? Do you notice spicy notes like cinnamon or black pepper?
Texture: Notice your pieces’ mouthfeel. As your chocolate melts, note how it feels. Is it smooth, powdery, or waxy? Try to slow down to experience the aftertaste for as long as possible in order to get the full chocolate effect.
