Check out our brewing tips for Cacao Shell Tea here.


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.  Cacao is considered a zero calorie product (trace calories per serving).

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.  Mix with milk and a touch of maple syrup for a delightful treat!
