Cocoa, also known as hot chocolate, drinking chocolate, and as chocolate tea in Nigeria, is a heated beverage that typically consists of chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and sugar."

"While hot chocolate is generally thought of as a drink consumed for pleasure, recent studies have suggested that hot chocolate possesses health benefits due to antioxidants that can be found in cocoa." "Until the 19th century, hot chocolate was even used medicinally to treat ailments such as stomach diseases."

"The first chocolate beverage is believed to have been created by the Mayan peoples around 2000 years ago, and a cocoa beverage was an essential part of Aztec culture by 1400 A.D." "The beverage became popular in Europe after being introduced from Mexico in the New World, and has undergone multiple changes since then." "Today, hot chocolate is consumed throughout the world and comes in multiple variations including the very thick cioccolata densa served in Italy, and the thinner hot cocoa that is typically consumed in the United States."
