Fu Wan in dedicated to sharing with the world the delicious ingredients that Taiwan has to offer, through the medium of chocolate. Fu Wan started its life not as a chocolate brand, but as a resort in Taiwan. Warren Hsu was the executive chef at Fu Wan Resort. When the resort opened in 2011, Hsu’s mission was to provide guests with the very best local fusion cuisine. Whilst sourcing ingredients locally, he met a cacao farmer who introduced him to the Taiwanese cacao bean. Hsu was inspired, and Fu Wan Chocolate was born.
Warren Hsu is one of only a handful of people crafting chocolate from bean to bar in Taiwan. He trained with expert bean to bar makers, before returning to Taiwan to start crafting bars. Through his chocolate, he is able to share the flavours of his native cacao not only with those who stay at Fu Wan Resort, but with people from across the world.
Fu Wan’s bars have been well received across the world, and gained a number of awards at their first outing at the International Chocolate Awards and Academy of Chocolate. This particular chocolate is a Gold winner.
This 62% dark chocolate is made from cacao of Taiwan, with delicate Tie-Guen-Yin tea. This premium oolong tea adds an unforgettable fruity fragrance to the subtly spicy Taiwanese cacao.
