The Long Road to Chocolate Tea
Tea comes from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, which is native to Asia. Chocolate, on the other hand, is the product of roasting and grinding cacao seeds from the Theobroma cacao tree - a species originating from the Americas.
It is perhaps no surprise, then, that these two remarkable ingredients took a while to meet. Indeed, Chocolate Tea is a blend many thousands of years in the making.
Where did it all begin? In the case of Tea, the legendary story goes that a Chinese Emperor named Shennong discovered it in 2737 BCE. In the case of chocolate, it was the Maya people of Mesoamerica (Central America).
Green Tea was reportedly the first Type of Tea. Meanwhile, chocolate became more valuable than gold following the Aztec conquest.
It wouldn’t be until the Spanish colonisation of the Americas that the potential of these two commodities uniting became a reality.
But even then, it wouldn’t occur for some time. Fast forward a few hundred years, and we now have this delectable beverage at the ready.

Health Benefits of Chocolate Tea
Habitual Tea drinking (at least three times a week) could support a longer, healthier life. This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 volunteers split into two groups.
The first group comprised participants who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group included those who drank less than three brews a week.
Both sets of test subjects were followed-up for a median of 7.3 years. The results ultimately establish that 50-year-old habitual Tea drinkers had a 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease.
Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or rarely drank Tea. Pretty neat for your new favourite beverage, wouldn’t you agree?
