Cocoa Tea Balls

In Grenada, as in most of the Caribbean Islands, cocoa tea is the preferred morning drink and as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Grenadians say it contributes to their good health. We are happy to introduce this healthy, natural and unprocessed beverage to our customers. The balls are made of roasted cocoa nibs and ground into a paste with nutmeg, bay leaf, pepper, cinnamon, and clove. Cocoa tea balls may also be grated over hot chocolate for a zesty garnish. Available in packages of 5.

Cocoa Tea
   2 cups water
   1 bay leaf
   Pinch of cinnamon
   ½ cup of milk
   Sugar to taste

Simmer water with cinnamon and bay leaf. Add grated Cocoa Tea Ball and nutmeg then simmer for another 10 minutes. Add milk and sweeten to taste.

*On the Caribbean islands people often use evaporated milk for reasons of convenience and non-spoilage. Try it both ways to determine your preference.

Also, try grating over your cup of hot chocolate - delicious!
