Organic Cacao + Peppermint Leaf Tea

12.00

I love the combination of chocolate and mint. After all the chocolate I've tasted, it's still one of my all-time favorites. Which is why it was fun to create this simple, but delicious tea blend of cacao husks (naturally lightly sweetened) and peppermint leaves (all organic). I've only had it hot so far, but imagine it would be really loved iced, as well. 

Cacao tea is made from the shell or husk of the cocoa bean (not the pod). The shell is a by-product of making chocolate from cacao beans. The fermentation of the beans leaves a natural sweet & light chocolate-y flavor on the cacao shells, which you'll notice upon drinking the tea. 

What are the health benefits? They include: antioxidants (phenolic phytochemicals, flavonoids), neurotransmitters (phenylethylamine, anandamide) amino acids, micronutrients (magnesium, iron, zinc), cardiovascular health (lowers blood pressure), healthy fats, thermogenic aid, and trace amounts of caffeine.
