In the 1930s, Lu'an tea enjoyed widespread popularity in Southeast Asia and Guangdong. Often mistaken for Lu'an melon seed tea, a green tea variant, the Lu'an tea we're discussing here is actually a rich black tea. Similar to Pu'er tea, its aroma and flavor improve with age.

This white chocolate bar may deceive at first glance due to its dark hue. Infused with Lu'an tea, it offers a subtle warmth, low astringency, and gentle behaviour. To enhance its delicate nature, SLOK opted for soy powder over milk powder. Expect an elegant aroma with a hint of sweetness that intensifies upon melting in your mouth, leaving a lingering essence of tea.

Dairy-free, Vegan, No added lecithin or vanilla

This brand appeals to individuals who are not afraid innovative chocolate experiences. SLOK boldly combines premium bean-to-bar chocolate with classic Asian tastes, delivering a culinary journey similar to a Michelin-starred NOMA-like adventure. For those seeking a more traditional flavor profile and hesitant to be too adventurous to try such offerings like duck liver or Hokkaido dried scallop chocolate, the brand also offers one of the best and rare selections of award-winning plain dark chocolate bars and very limited releases of single-origin hot chocolate. Their Peru Chucho 72%, named the world's best hot chocolate of 2024 by the International Chocolate Awards, is one of those very exclusive experiences for those who know their food, wine, and, of course, chocolate.

Sporting a plump sloth as its mascot, Slok Chocolate epitomizes a philosophy deeply rooted in the slow food movement. Its single-origin chocolate bars embrace simplicity, crafted solely from two ingredients: cacao and organic sugar, devoid of any added lecithin or vanilla.

The current selection includes bars sourced from Ecuador, the Philippines, Brazil, India, and Vietnam.

This brand also attracts individuals unafraid of innovative culinary experiences. SLOK boldly but thoughtfully merges premium bean-to-bar chocolate with traditional Asian flavors, offering a gastronomic voyage reminiscent of a Michelin-starred NOMA-like experience, like duck liver or Hokkaido dried scallop chocolate.

The scale of production is very limited and only available for pre-orders exclusively at Hello Chocolate.

​*No added lecithin or vanilla. Keep and store in cool dry place.

Our chocolate makers proudly refrain from using any artificial stabilizers or preservatives in their products, making their creations more temperature-sensitive compared to other premium chocolates.

To ensure the optimal taste experience, it's advisable to store our chocolates in a cool, dry place where the temperature hovers between 16°C and 18°C. Please refrain from refrigerating our chocolates, as this may cause sugar crystallization due to increased humidity, altering their texture and flavor.

On the contrary, if stored in excessively high temperatures, cocoa butter may separate and form a white film on the chocolate's surface. This loss of cocoa butter can lead to the chocolate drying out and, consequently, a potential alteration in flavor. Your mindful storage practices will help preserve the integrity of our delectable chocolates.
