Cacao Husk, from Soconusco Mexico
Also Known as: Cocoa Tea, Chocolate Tea
First discovered by the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations thousands of years ago, cacao tea is brewed from the husks or shells of cacao beans after being dried and roasted. Cacao tea provides a delicate boost in energy and increased mental focus without the harsh effects of caffeine, making it the best alternative for coffee. It is also completely sugar-free, caffeine-free, gluten-free and dairy-free.
In addition to the health benefits the tea is believed to have, cacao husk tea is also environmentally friendly. With the cacao husks having traditionally been considered a waste by-product of chocolate making and other cacao products, the use of it as the primary ingredient in tea turns it into a sustainable and highly rated product.
