Inviting and rich, the warm smell of chocolate greets you as you open the tin and settle in for a cup tea. A rich and smooth blend of rooibos and cacao, this tea is a refined take on the comforting feeling of sipping hot chocolate on a cold day.The cacao tree is native to the Americas. It may have originated in the foothills of the Andes in the Amazon and Orinoco basins of South America where today, examples of wild cacao still can be found. The cacao bean was a common currency throughout Mesoamerica and the Caribbean before the Spanish conquest. The cacao plant was first given its botanical name by Swedish natural scientist Carl Linnaeus in his original classification of the plant kingdom, who called it Theobroma cacao, or "food of the gods".

I don’t really get the same chocolate taste from this tea as I have found with other chocolate teas, but it is still tasty in its own way. Don’t love it, don’t hate it.

This review is more like a story. I went for a long walk last week on a pretty cold day. I found myself craving a hot chocolate when I got home. Of course there was no cacao in my cupboard, so instead I made a hot cuppa Red Chocolate. It certainly does the trick! Plus zero calories. I also tried it with a dash of cinnamon, it was delightful. To anyone who enjoys a chocolatey beverage, this one is for you
