about first nibs

At Raaka, chocolate is a living art. We source rare cacao varieties from around the world, conche them at low temperatures to preserve untamed flavor and infuse them with bold ingredients like saffron, lapsang souchong tea and more.

Each month, we'll send two limited edition bars and one Raaka classic along with notes on craftsmanship and sourcing from our barsmith Nate Hodge.

A First Nibs monthly membership is an unforgettable gift for any chocolate lover. We’ll help you make them feel special by including a handwritten gift note in the first box, which will arrive in a handsome muslin gift bag. Just look for the prompt as you place your order.

Raaka Chocolate

this month’s bars

In the tradition of the gongfu tea ceremony of the Fujian province in China, this month we present two bars infused with Wuyi Oolong tea at different moments in the tea's flavor life-cycle. Gongfu, which means 'with time and effort', is a way to brew oolong so that no potential nuances in the tea are missed. The gongfu method can call for up to 8 steepings of high quality oolong.


Wuyi Oolong, 2nd Steeping, 66%, Oko Caribe, DR

Wuyi Oolong, 5th Steeping, 66%, Oko Caribe, DR
