This was the last day of Chocolate and Chai Theme Week. I've enjoyed several combinations of cardamom and spiced chai (tea) blended with chocolate this week: truffles, caramels, bars, ice cream, and today -- a glass of cold Chai Cocoa from Cotton Tree Chocolate (Punta Gorda, Belize).
I mixed a few spoonfuls of this rich, slightly earthy, organic cocoa powder from Belize, into a cup of cold, 2% milk. The Chai Cocoa mix had hints of cinnamon, cloves and allspice. This flavorful and refreshing cold cocoa hit the spot on this hot July day.
Cotton Tree Chocolate, located on the Caribbean coastal town of Punta Gorda in Southern Belize, also has a line of bars with farm flavors that highlight endemic foods and spices -- such as Belizean coffee, coconut and black pepper.
