Agree with the other reviewer, the underlying chocolate didn't impress me. But the tea flavor was really powerful and lovely.
I loved the idea of this flavor and was excited to try it but did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped.
While I appreciate the unusual oolong tea infusion, the texture of the chocolate and the taste of the chocolate outside the oolong tea simply did not wow me. I find Fu Wan chocolate's texture to a be a bit "chalky" and not silky smooth enough for my liking. I suspect this is because of a higher content of sugar compared with cocoa butter (which I've surmised by comparing the nutrition facts labels on this bar and other bars, and looking at the sugar vs. fat grams). I preferred this over the same bar without the oolong tea, but I don't think it's worth the price.
I love oolong tea and have had high expectations of this award-winning bar. It turned out to be just ok. I personally find the tea flavor a little too weak. It's disappointing for such an expensive bar.

Collection title: Fu Wan Chocolate
Collection description: Fu Wan Chocolate (or FuWan) is a tree and bean to bar chocolate maker from Taiwan. They make chocolates from natively grown Taiwanese cocoa and from other fine cocoa bean sources from around the world. In 2011, Fu Wan originally started a resort, Warren Hsu, the executive chef at the resort wanted to provide the best local cuisine to its guests. One day he met a cacao farmer while Hsu was sourcing local ingredients and was introduced to cacao, and Hsu was immediately inspired by real tasting chocolate! With the cacao industry being relatively young, most of the cacao is being exported, making Fu Wan one of the very few makers handcrafting bean to bar chocolate with local cacao beans. Hsu has trained with bean to bar makers to share his journey of flavors through his chocolate bars. Fu Wan also believes in an eco-friendly approach. They take emptied out cacao pods, which are considered a waste product and convert them into cacao syrup. They also product cacao tea and even in the works of producing cacao paper. Warren came up with the name Fu Wan because Fu meaning fortune, blessings and happiness, and Wan means bay. Fu Wan is located near a national scenic area, hence they are from a bay full of fortune, blessings and happiness!

Collection title: Pingtung, Taiwan
Collection description: Pingtung County is the southernmost region in Taiwan, with a warm tropical monsoon climate and a reputation for agricultural & aboriginal tourism. Until the arrival of Hakka settlers from southern China in the mid-1600’s, this part of Taiwan was actually known as a place of exile for Chinese criminals. In modern-day Pingtung, it’s still common to hear locals speaking the Hakka language, and occasionally one of the few remaining indigenous languages of Taiwan. Cacao is believed to have been introduced to the region during the lengthy Japanese occupation of Taiwan, in the late 1800’s, and has only seen a resurgence over the last decade.
