The Caribbean is famous for sea, sand and sun. However, it’s also famous for sugar, rum, cotton, coffee, spice and cocoa. The Caribbean's rich volcanic soils and tropical climate make it a perfect location for an agricultural economy. Cocoa trees especially love this type of environment and the Caribbean produces Criollo and Trinitario Cocoa, two of the most rare and sought after cocoas in the world. This recipe for Chocolate Tea is a local favorite that infuses that delicious cocoa flavor with local spices to create a truly comforting cup of warmth. We are highlighting traditionally made cocoa balls that are 100% natural and organic to give you the authentic Cocoa Tea experience.
