Hoja Verde 50% dark milk

Unfortunately, there is no beautiful shot of this chocolate. This dark milk chocolate is described as "a delicacy" by Hoja Verde, and it has been awarded 'best milk chocolate of Ecuador 2014'. I love the packaging, with cow spots along the side

Despite having tried this chocolate before, the aroma was not what I expected. It had tones of lucuma, cocoa and general lightness. It wasn't the floral-ness I was expecting from Ecuadorian cacao

In the mouth, the melt begun swiftly with a smooth, buttery, creamy, thick texture. The taste, like the aroma, was unique. I thought herby, dairy, lucuma. It was strange but ever so compelling
