For lovers of Lady Chatterley -- the tea keeps coming Constancely in delicate waves of foreplay.
Appearance   4.5 / 5
Color: medium pine cone
Surface: unremarkable in contrast to shimmering fuschia ink against tan lines on the wrapper (click image upper right to enlarge)
Temper: clear screen
Snap: crisp
Aroma   7.2 / 10
fragrant tea, bergamot & mellow citrus sits atop subtle cocoa
Mouthfeel   13.4 / 15
Texture: finest in all Raaka-dom
Melt: kicks back long & even with major hang time
Flavor   44.9 / 50
transfers easily from the Aroma (above) -- bergamot tea & spice -> phase-in sweet cream -> citrus creamsicle brightens to well-controlled pekoe orange peel -> blurry cocoa... virtually lost as backdrop
Quality   18 / 20
Unique style x matured skillex.

Good makers grow & evolve.

Start with integrity (self-christened "virgin" [re: unroasted] rather than hypes-a-daisical “raw”), stick to commitment (dedicated to max the nutritional value irrespective of microbes in the mix)… follow-thru to quality (increases in line with market share).

That’s Raaka.

Entering a new phase with upgraded equipment & procedures that impart finer texture / Mouthfeel to complement flavors that emerge more linear than its previous densely structured bars.

No wonder this "Limited Batch" bar became a fan-fav by Raaka subscribers.

Chocolate beyond niche or gimmick.

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, earl grey tea, orange peel
