Cacao Tea – Costa Esmeraldas 2017 Harvest, Ecuador
80 grams resealable package.
How to brew:
To ensure the full flavor is released, cacao tea requires hotter water and longer steep time. We recommend steeping two teaspoons of loose leaf tea (using an infuser or tea bag) in a cup of boiling water (210° F) for at least 6-8 minutes. Enjoy it pure or with sweetener. It can also be used in mix drinks as well if the natural chocolate flavor is desired. Of course, you can add more tea if a stronger flavor is desired.
