Easter Wishes with Chocolate Honeybush

Easter Wishes with Chocolate Honeybush

“The Spirit of Easter is all about Hope, Love and Joyful living.”

-Anonymous

Easter celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead.  This is the most important holiday in all of Christianity.  As with Christmas, over the centuries various folk customs and pagan traditions have become a standard part of this holy holiday.  Some include Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, Easter baskets of candy and CHOCOLATE.  There are lots of stories about the connection of eggs (re-birth) and bunnies (originally hares actually and a symbol of new life in ancient times).  Above all, I am not sure how the chocolate connection came about.

Most of us have no problem with chocolate being included, reason or not!  At Local Tea Company we cannot offer chocolate eggs or bunnies but a very special tea we call Chocolate Honeybush.

Chocolate Honeybush

Honeybush is an herbal infusion or ‘tisane’ grown in the Langkloof Mountains of South Africa.  Read more from a previous post on Honeybush to learn all about this lovely tea.

Some might say that Honeybush is not complete without the addition of those chocolate and caramel pieces.  Similarly, if you smell and tast this version of honeybush you might agree!

You will find us this weekend serving and delighting our customers with Chocolate Honeybush in the Carriage House Tea Room at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.  And on Saturday morning at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market.  We can guarantee plenty of love and joy too.

Please join us if you can for a chocolate celebration (without the calories!).  If you are not local, then visit our online shop to stock up on your Easter supplies.  Be sure to share you Easter Chocolate Honeybush with all of your friends.

With good wishes to you all for the Easter holiday.

Cheers,
the TeaLady
