Rich chocolaty depths, soft astringent notes and a round full body. Perfect afternoon tea pick me up.
It was 1753 when Carl Linnaeus designated the cacao tree, Theobroma cacao, which translates literally as “cacao, food of the gods”. At this time, a rich dark chocolate hot drink was the beverage of choice in Italy. A few hundred years has not changed much. Rich dark chocolate is heralded as much for its delicious seductive quality as well as its health benefits. Your love affair with Cocoa Rose will start with the aroma; deep, rich and enticing, with the flower petals winking at you. Once you steep a pot you’ll be rewarded with rich chocolaty depths, soft astringent notes and a round full body. A perfect afternoon tea pick me up.
