It’s funny how sometimes things pop up in the oddest of places, leading you on a trail to something else. Hhow I came to find this tea is one such tale.
I like a bit of music. Well, actually, I like a LOT of music. All types. A friend gave me a copy of a Prince Buster CD, and one of the tracks (Hard Man Fi Dead, if you must know) contains this verse.
“Them boil one pot of chocolate tea.
And all the fried fish they caught in the sea
They also got six quart o’ rum
Saying that they waiting for the nine night to come”
“Chocolate Tea? Chocolate Tea? What’s that? ” I wondered, and continued to wonder.
Until I came across this.
Yogi Tea Choco contains 60% organic cocoa shells, as well as a host of other spices and spices†. Think chai with a chocolate twist.
Warming, slightly spicy but with a definite cocoa kick to it, and very good for you, so they say.
It smells very cocoa-y in the cup and this comes through when you drink it. Of course it isn’t at all sweet (but you could add sugar) and the spiciness, while not hot, may not be to all tastes, but I rather like it. Give it a go if you have a taste for the unusual. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Whoda thunk an old reggae song would have resulted in my finding chocolate tea? Cheers Prince Buster!
