Our Cacao husk is sourced from the award winning Hogarth Chocolate based in Nelson. Cacao Tea is a 100% natural, loose leaf chocolate tea made from cacao husk; the outer shell of the cacao bean.
During the chocolate making process, cacao beans are harvested, fermented and dried before being roasted. Each step of this process plays an important part in developing the unique chocolate flavour characteristics of the cacao. The beans are then cracked in a winnower to separate the nibs from the husks. The nibs go on to make chocolate, and the husks are left to create our beautiful cacao tea.
Cacao husk is naturally high in antioxidants and contains one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium. It also contains Theobromine, a natural stimulant that creates a gentle slow-release effect pick me up, without the caffeine induced crash.
For those wanting to avoid sugar, it is the perfect mood booster at any stage of the day and is perfect when you want chocolate but don't want everybody knowing you are having it.
