It’s not like I need any more tea with a tea cupboard overflowing but I just can’t pass up trying something new. On our trip to Hawaii we were able to visit Lydgate Farms – a Chocolate Farm. I will be sharing more about that later and how wonderful their chocolate is but today I wanted to share a somewhat unconventional tea that I bought there during our visit.
The tea is unusual – made from the roasted husks of the cacao beans to make a slightly chocolate scented tea. I brewed it and sweetened it with a bit of honey and it was an unusual and enjoyable tea. They also recommend using it to make iced tea with orange and honey, or using it to make Chocolate Vodka or Chocolate Rum.
So what do you think? Yay or nay to chocolate tea? I have had some that a friend gifted me that I love and this is a whole different take on it. It has a lighter flavor and is not overwhelming at all.
Outside of the chair, the teapot is the most ubiquitous and important design element in the domestic environment and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one.
