Trade with Far Harad brought exotic luxuries. Glancing at the moon's position in the darkening sky Aragorn waited patiently as the merchant extolled his goods' remarkable qualities.
"You taste it first yourself," the man insisted in heavily accented speech.
Aragorn acquiesced, and the servant brought him a cup of a strange thick dark beverage.
"It must be prepared correctly for the best flavor. I write out directions for each purchaser," the merchant said as Aragorn sipped cautiously.
The flavor rolled over his tongue in velvet spiciness. This would be a gift truly fit for his queen, this chocolate, he thought.
