Story, Folklore, History

Cacao trees are native to Central and South America. The Aztecs were some of the first recorded to consume chocolate as a beverage. Some sources say they called their hot beverage chocolate, it was consumed as a hot liquid with no sweetening ingredients, but instead with chili peppers to spice up the beverage. Their emperor was said to have drank 50 cups of chocolate each day! When discovered by Europeans, they found the drink to be far too bitter, and added cane sugar to sweeten the rich and bitter product.


Be careful not to infuse too long! The longer you steep, the spicier it gets. Start with 2-3 minutes and increase to taste if desired.



This has become one of my favorite teas! I love the spicy kick and combined with the chocolate…how could you go wrong?



A great winter tea! I received this tea as a sample with my order and it is lovely. I don’t find the chocolate stands out much at all but I still enjoyed it. The flavour to me was a sweet chai. The spicy flavour comes out more the longer you steep it.



This has probably become one of my favorites…this infusion is a perfect combination and really clears your sinuses…the longer you steep it the spice kicks up even more!


Tea man

Love the spice kick you get from that blend! WOOW!



The spicy flavor overpowers the chocolate and tea for me


I really enjoyed this tea, but as the description and other comments note, steeping does bring out some serious spice! For me, this is a great tea when I’m in the right mood for it, but not a go-to, everyday kind of tea.



I loved this tea and found the blend of flavours to be excellent for a pick-me-up and a great combination. I prefer it steeped for only 2 minutes, when it leaves a slight heat in the back of the mouth. If steeped for 3 minutes it is too hot for me.
A great tea, worth a try!



I tried a sample of this and loved the spice.  This was the first one on my order for my cafe.



I love this spicy chocolatey blend! Be careful not to infuse for too long, it can get to be too spicy! smile



Very nice with just enough spices to wake up!
