Drinking Chocolate with Taha'a Vanilla Salt

Drinking Chocolate with Taha'a Vanilla Salt 1

Another way to experience the power and revel in the versatility of chocolate is to drink it.

The history of drinking chocolate dates back to the deepest shadows of pre-civilization; for hundreds of years, and possibly for thousands, French, Spanish, Aztecs, and Olmecs have consumed it as a drink. When melted down, superbly crafted dark chocolate reaches its fullest expression. It is complex and stimulating; an entire jungle of Theobroma cacao chocolate trees spring up from your taste buds, revealing before you unexpected textural dimensions and infinitely varied flavors.
