Who doesn’t love a warm mug of “cocoa tea”? Especially on overcast or rainy days! Made by grating bars of compressed spice-infused cocoa and simmering with full-cream milk (plant mylks should be as full-bodied as possible) and sugar before straining, the final result is both heart-warming and soul-affirming.
If you’re feeling for an added “kick” in your cocoa tea you can also try to prepare it Mexican-style with a dash of cayenne!
Trinidad’s world-famous Trinitario cocoa has been designated 100% Fine/Flavour by the International Cocoa Organisation. One of only 8 countries to receive this classification.
Cocoa of Excellence recognizes quality, flavour and diversity of cocoas from origins around the world, to improve farmers’ livelihoods and drive sustainability of the cocoa supply chain, since 2009.
Trinidad and Tobago is one of eight (8) countries that exclusively produce, 100% fine or flavour cocoa. The general flavours of Trinidad & Tobago have remained unique and distinct because of the climate, soil, flora & fauna, and processing. The CDCTTL (Cocoa Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago) will continue to promote and develop the expertise of local cocoa producers to international award-winning levels, in fulfilment of its mandate to champion the success of the fine or flavour cocoa industry.Ministry of Agriculture, Land & Fisheries
