Give your Valentine pearl…chocolate!? 2021-01-31 Sun 2021-01-31 Sun If love were measured in outlandishness, then Japanese Valentine's Day gifts would be the standard against which all measurements are made. From ramen to true love tuna, each year Japan manages to craft new ways for people to express their love. This year, the definition of decadence is being tested by a special chocolate laced with powdered pearl and sake. Pearl Powder Chocolate Bar Japan’s first bean to bar artisanal chocolate store, green bean to bar CHOCOLATE is selling their handcrafted pearl powder chocolate for the Valentine's period only. The milk chocolate tablet is made from Peruvian Pablo Blanco cocoa beans and contains powdered pearl. The chocolate has a soft earl gray flavor like milk tea, which is created by roasting the cocoa beans at low temperature according to green bean to bar. © PR Times, Inc. To add such a rare ingredient as pearl powder, green bean to bar are partnering with 意一堂 (eng: Essentia) a Taiwanese company that specializes in Chinese Medicine. The company uses powdered pearl in some of its medicinal products and manufactures the raw materials itself. Even within Chinese medicine pearl powder is rarely used, however, and was favored by the Chinese royal court in ancient times, making the pearl chocolate an exotic and rare Valentine's Day treat indeed.
