Place a small piece of chocolate on your tongue, make sure it is room temperature and not too cold. Don’t bite it straight away!
Stick it to the top of your mouth and massage the chocolate with your tongue so it slowly starts to melt and cover your tongue (tastes are triggered in different areas of our tongue) only now should you bite the chocolate.
Breathe through your nose to ignite your sense of smell and taste.
See if you can highlight any distinct flavours such as floral, earthy, fruity, spicy, nutty. Using a chocolate flavour wheel can help you identify flavours, here are our favourite flavour wheels, give it a try!
