Vietnamese cocoa has had a tumultuous history, beginning with a largely unsuccessful introduction in the 19th century. More cocoa trees were introduced in the 1980s, but again, circumstances conspired against their success - until the early 2000s, when demand for cocoa began to grow in Asia, which led to another push for plantations in Vietnam. It was this effort that bore fruit, and now Bên Tre is one of a number of successful plantations in Vietnam.
Tasting notes: A smoky start and spicy character, which slowly changes to a light acidity and notes of yellow fruit.
This bar was awarded the International Chocolate Awards Bronze Award in the European category in 2016
