A perfect dessert tea with fresh lovely mint combined with full flavored chocolate and black tea. A bit of milk and sugar elevates a cup into a decadent treat!
During its long history, chocolate was originally drunk, not eaten, with its origins being traced back to the ancient Maya, and Aztec civilization in Central America. The Maya used cocoa beans as a form of currency as well as a special ingredient in their drink. For the Europeans, in the 1600's and 1700's, there existed a hefty import duty on cocoa, resulting in chocolate becoming an item that only the wealthy could afford to enjoy.
Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
