Madre Chocolate Kona Criollo

  Madre Chocolate Kona Criollo chocolate bar with Icewine Tea  Madre Chocolate Kona Criollo bar paired with Chai Cupboard Iccwine Tea.   Chocolate notes:  Reminds me of unsalted cashew nuts, whipped cream, all wrapped up in a light chocolate without an ounce of bitterness.  Subtle and delicious.  I choice the ice wine tea thinking the light fruity wine notes would complement. The surprise was that the bitter undertones and acidity in the tea are offset by the chocolate, making the chocolate seem even more delicate.
