Cocoa Tea Recipe Lucian Style


If you think you’ve tasted the best tea, wait till you taste this one. Absolutely everyone loves it.

It is made from the naturally grounded cocoa. This is really a simply recipe and the cocoa stick can be found at most super markets or at the Castries market. Don’t buy them if they look a little moist. Get one that is firm and dry so it can be grated properly.

The cocoa stick is made when the cocoa is grinned and is rolled up long as a stick. This is when we use it to make our cocoa tea. Most St Lucians like theirs thick, while others like it plain. It does not matter what your taste is, the recipe was made with both users in mind.


  • 2 Tablespoons grated cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon white flour (optional)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar


Put two cups of water to boil in a pot while adding your two table spoons of grated cocoa, grated nutmeg, and cinnamon. Allow it to boil for approximately three to four minutes. Add milk to the pot and stir as you seethe the flour to thicken to prevent it from making lumps. The flour is optional and is only for if you want it a bit thick. Add sugar for taste. This recipe serves two cups of delicious St Lucia cocoa tea. You may choose to add less or more sugar depending on your taste.
