I can remember the mornings waking up and smelling tea boiling on the stove. It's a smell that really pulls at your stomach strings and lets you know that breakfast is being served. Chocolate tea was specially made on Christmas mornings at my house. It was just a kinda tea that just needed to be made on special occasions.

Since making this tea for me was so special, I feel like giving a special person a chance to try a pack of raw chocolate.

As much as food is important in the Caribbean, drinks are running a close second. We have a collection of staple drinks like peanut punch, rum punch, hot cocoa, Guinness punch, sorrel and then there’s mauby. A classic drink found on many a table during Sunday dinner.
