From Lamanai Chocolate
Made by indigenous Maya using ancient fermentation processes, cacao beans are wrapped in banana leaves before they are sun-dried and roasted over an open fire.
2,500 years ago in the Maya lowlands, the Maya were making a chocolate drink from cacao. In the beginning of the 17th Century, a delegation of Quechi Maya nobles from Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, introduced the cacao drink to the Spanish court. Chocolate was actually the first drink of the Europeans, BEFORE coffee or tea were introduced!
Maya Cacao Super Teas are available in two delicious flavors!
Cacao Neem Lemon Grass Tea - Used by the Maya as an antiviral blood cleanser, for skin irritation and to increase blood flow to the brain for mood enhancement and memory.

Cacao Super Teas naturally contain 10% Theobromine, formerly known as xantheose, a bitter alkaloid of the cacao plant, with the chemical formula C₇H₈N₄O₂. It is found in chocolate, as well as in a number of other foods, including the leaves of the tea plant, and the kola nut. It is classified as a xanthine alkaloid, others of which include theophylline and caffeine.
