Maker

Fu Wan Chocolate

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!

Interesting tea flavor!

Agree with the other reviewer, the underlying chocolate didn't impress me. But the tea flavor was really powerful and lovely.

Interesting

I loved the idea of this flavor and was excited to try it but did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped.

Interesting oolong infusion, but the chocolate base doesn't wow me

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 had high expectations

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.
