Make + Take: Chocolate and Green Tea (2019)

  • Date: October 10, 2019

Chocolate and green tea have long, global histories and myriad health benefits. In this workshop, we’ll dive into the traditional cultural medicinal uses and colonial histories of both these plants. We’ll talk about how they are currently used to improve vitality and support chronic health issues. We’ll sample lots of green tea and chocolate, and everyone will take home a medicinal hot chocolate blend, as well as recipes to try.
