Hello! I’ve been in Honolulu for the last few days (though wish I could have extended my Taipei visit, what an amazing city :). And tomorrow we are heading to the Big Island.
In the meantime, I want to share this chocolate bar with you. If you were here in person, I would literally share it with you…super delicious. It’s from a local chocolate company called Madre Chocolates. They have a retail shop in Kailua though I first found them at the Blaisdell Farmers Market earlier this summer.
The most memorable bar was a 70% chocolate infused with Earl Grey tea. Extra potent.
They sourced tea from Hilo-based Big Island Tea but because the tea is now sold exclusively at Harrods in London (most impressive!) they no longer make this specific bar, but are still searching for a good tea to substitute.
Not long after I tried that bar, I met Elyse Petersen of Tealet…
…and tasted the genmaicha chocolate bars Madre created for one of their teas. How neat is that?
Going to visit the Kailua shop next week to see what other flavors I can find ^_^
