Cocoa Tea Workshop

May 20th, 2023

2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Try your hand at making authentic cocoa tea! Throughout Central America and the Caribbean pure cocoa beans are ground together with spices and formed into discs, balls, or sticks that are dried and then grated into sweetened hot water or milk. You might better recognize the results of this historical process as “hot chocolate.”  You’ll also taste a tisane or “tea” made from the shells of cocoa beans. 


Our Executive Director, Ramin Ganeshram, a trained chef, food historian and award-winning cookbook author, will talk about the history behind chocolate and follow along as she teaches you to make your own special treats for yourself or to give as a gift!
