Our cacao teas have been created with 4 important fundamentals in mind, that are always at the core of everything we do.
Our teas are 100% natural and contain no added sugars, artificial flavours or ingredients. For us, it’s all about getting back to simple, real and whole foods; and minimising the consumption of artificial and processed ingredients that have harmful effects on our health.
There are so many ‘food-like products we consume these days, filled with sugars, chemicals and ingredients we cannot recognise. Chocolate can not get more natural than this!
Not only does this tea satisfy the desire for that chocolate fix, but is also rich in nutritional antioxidants, vitamins and minerals; to name a few magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium plus feel-good 'bliss-chemicals'.
Caffeine free and naturally containing theobromine, cacao tea offers a gentle pick-me-up to boost your mood and make you feel GOOD.
The perfect alternative to a sugar-laden chocolate bar or a caffeine-heavy coffee.
Our cacao teas are made from cacao bean husk, which is the outer shell of the cacao bean and a by-product of chocolate making.
When cacao beans are harvested from the cacao pods, fermented and dried, they are then roasted and cracked to separate the nibs from the husk (shell). The nibs go on to make chocolate and the husks are left to create our beautiful cacao teas.
One thing that’s extremely important to us is the ethical sourcing of our cacao.
In the cacao industry it’s very common for crops to be produced with profit margins prioritised over ethics and the exploitation of slave labour still exists.
Our cacao is ethically sourced from around the world from suppliers who only trade directly with the farmers and have close relationships with them. This not only means farmers are paid higher than fair trade prices, enabling them to support their families, invest back into their farms and communities, but enables a 'quality over quantity' approach, unlike on a large commercial level where crops are produced for high-yield, lost cost and this is where unethical farming practices and slave labour takes place.
