Cacao Shell Tea - roasted cacao shells
Martha Washington enjoyed steeping the shells of roasted cocoa nuts from the cacao tree for the interesting flavor and health benefits.
Tasting notes: Aroma of toast before brewing. Steeping in hot water unleashes a tonic of chocolate. The brew yields a full-bodied, slightly bitter infusion with strong notes of chocolate, and light flavors of melon.
Caffeine: Cacao shell tea is caffeine-free, but it does contain other natural stimulants.
Brewing: Suggested serving per 10oz cup: 2 tsp, 195 degrees. Cacao shells take 5-10 minutes to infuse their full flavor.
