A GUIDED TASTING of CHOCOLATE
Using your body and mind, connect with the healing power of Spring. In this process of eating chocolate, you will be brought into your senses and ultimately into the essence of self. Trust the voice you find inside. Our chocolates are infused with a healing sound frequency of 528 Hz.
BREATHE: Close your eyes. Take three deep, ujjayi breaths. Listen to the space between thought and prepare your palate to experience chocolate.
SEE: Describe what you see. What is the shape, color, sheen and texture?
TOUCH: Run your finger against the chocolate, noticing it’s texture and releasing the aromatics.
ON THE NOSE: Bring the chocolate to your nose. Close your eyes, cup your hand around the chocolate and inhale deeply.
ON THE PALATE: Enjoy your truffle in two bites. In the first bite you are just getting to know the truffle, and in the second, you delve deeper, searching out the aromas and nuances.
THE FINISH: Breathe into your mouth and taste the lingering finish. You will be the judge.
