Spice & Vegan Chocolate = Very Nice
The box was pretty clever in that it must have hidden magnets that let the front flap snap from the rest of the box letting it open as you see above. Inside were five large pieces of solid dark with colored cocoa butter decorating the top created by a company called Spice Rack Chocolates. These were an "Earl Grey Tea & Piquant Orange" flavor and as you know from past reviews and Sacraments here on The Chocolate Cult, tea and chocolate can be a tricky mix to make. Often the tea overwhelms the chocolate or is so faint you'd couldn't identify it as a tea flavor.
For all my readers, if you know of a great chocolatier, send them our way and we'll reveal them to the world. Please do leave comments and let us know what you think of our reviews, our articles, our essays and our philosophy.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
