Cacao Tea

After eight glorious weeks off, I am going back to work tomorrow.  I always take two teas with me to work each day - one to drink throughout the morning, and one for the afternoon.  Fortunately, I just found out about Cacao Tea, and I am so excited about it.

Cacao Tea is an all-natural tea, made only from cacao husks (shells) once they are removed from the cacao nibs.  It is completely free of sugar, calories, dairy, gluten, GMOs, and caffeine, but full of mouth-watering chocolate flavour.

The aroma is incredible, and it has a smooth chocolatey flavour with a very slight natural sweetness.  Although it is caffeine-free, it contains theobromine, a natural compound that provides a gentle energy boost, while decreasing blood pressure, and supporting healthy circulation, respiration, digestion, and brain function.

Cacao Tea is ethically-sourced, organically-grown, sustainable, and fair-trade.  It is rich in antioxidants (10 times that of green tea), flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals.  You can read more about the health benefits here and here.  And, check out the FAQ here.

It was very easy to brew; it's just 1-2 tsp per cup of boiling water, and a few minutes of steeping.  The flavour was perfect for someone like me, who finds hot chocolate way too sweet.  This tea is a perfect dessert-like beverage for me, or great as a morning or afternoon pick-me-up.

We often drink green tea for the health benefits, but I think we'll be switching it up for Cacao Tea for the added antioxidants and flavour.

Hey there! I've been reading your site for some time now and

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured
I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe
guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot
of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

Ooh, this tea sounds right up my alley as well! I like decaffeinated beverages in the afternoon as coffee as 11-12 makes it hard for me to fall asleep.

I can't believe you are already back to school! Where did the time go!

Hope your first few days back to work went well! I need to look into this tea, sounds like it would be the perfect afternoon treat to kick the sweet tooth cravings I tend to get around 3pm!!
