Its sweet dough and cream taste blend perfectly with its earthy and kushy undertones. Under its sugary flavors, you’ll notice a slightly bitter taste that reminds users of coffee and chocolate.
Biscotti’s dessert-like aroma features buttery, fruity, and gassy notes. An aroma of a freshly baked sweet bread spreads throughout after opening a jar or breaking apart its buds. A gassy, spicy, and earthy aroma subtly lingers around you and on your taste buds.
Biscotti’s most common terpene compounds include the following:
