Is It Tea Or Chocolate? The Nigerian Question.

Hello my people. Why do nigerians call bournvita, overtine, milo, pronto and the ilk TEA? This is very common in nigeria. They say 'tea' when it is actually 'chocolate'.

Anybody with an answer?

There is nothing wrong with it. You can call it 'chocolate tea'. 'chocolate' or just 'tea'
