About the bar
Oustanding rose scent.
Indeed lychee is a very aromatic fruit with hints of roses.
The fresh fruit has a grape/pear taste and musky tones.
But dried is different. More like grape/raisin.
The taiwanese cacao carries delicate caramel aroma. Chocolate tart fruit finish.
Can you imagine a Lychee Rose Mousse Cake? Taiwanese chocolate sprinkled with rose powder and filled with lychee mousse. Sublime!
NB: in this case the inclusion aroma prevails the chocolate taste. Lychee is the real protagonist of this romantic tasting experience.
