Innovative chocolatiers from around the world are experimenting with the tisane in chocolate drinks, which appeals to consumers looking for alternatives to traditional hot chocolate or coffee-based drinks.

Adele du Toit, spokesperson for the Rooibos Council, says Rooibos-based chocolate drinks vary widely, incorporating different blends, such as matcha and chai, and combining them with chocolate in various forms, such as cocoa powder, chocolate syrup or chocolate chips.
