Enter below for a chance to receive a package of your very own cacao tea! Giveaway runs through Sunday, October 6, 2019.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from a woman named Jessica. She ran a small business in the Pacific Northwest that sold cacao tea. I was intrigued, since I had not heard of it before. The tea is brewed from the husks of cacao beans, which gives it a natural sweetness, an amazing chocolate taste and aroma, and a delicate stimulating effect (but without the caffeine).
Jessica and I talked on the phone, and I learned that she came up with the idea while traveling to Mexico. Being a fellow chocoholic, Jessica fell in love with it during her travels. When she returned, she could not find the product at home so decided to launch her own company.
What differentiates Jessica’s product from other competitors is that her tea is only made of the cacao husk. Other companies start off with a different base and add cacao husks to it. Those usually contain additives and flavorings. The cacao tea from Cacao Tea Company contains no sugar, caffeine, sugar, dairy or gluten.
I steeped my tea for longer than the recommended time listed on the package. As a result, my tea had the most AMAZING chocolate aroma! It was almost intoxicating.
The tea had a subtle hint of chocolate to it. Not surprisingly, it made me crave a big chocolate bar or scoop of chocolate ice cream afterwards. Addie was the biggest fan and had a full mug of the tea. This tea is a great alternative to typical flavored teas. Since it doesn’t contain any artificial flavors, ingredients or caffeine, it’s much better for you.
