How to brew the ultimate cup of cacao husk tea

January 11, 2018

It's no secret that everyone has their own opinion on how to make the 'perfect cup of tea' but it's really such a personal thing that there's no one best way.

We can however tell you the best method to brew a really amazing cup of cacao tea, and you can adjust as you like for your personal taste.

What you'll need


  1. Place 2 teaspoons of loose leaf cacao husk tea into the tea infuser and place the infuser into your cup.
  2. Pour over 250ml boiling water and allow to steep for 5-7 minutes. Depending how strong you like your brew, the longer you allow to steep the more the rich chocolate flavours will develop. You can always add more water later if it's too strong.
  3. Remove the infuser from the mug and add any desired sweetener and/ or milk. See below for some delicious variations. 

Optional variations

  • Sweeten with a touch of coconut sugar or honey.
  • Add a dash of almond, coconut or macadamia milk.
  • Brew with some fresh mint leaves, coconut flakes or orange zest.
  • Try it iced! Brew as per instructions then place in the fridge overnight to cool, serve with ice.
  • Enjoy it on the go in our Elixir Glass Flask.
  • Pour cooled brewed tea into ice cube trays and freeze. Use in smoothies or to make iced chocolate or coffee.
