Cacao Chocolate Husk Tea

Tea Description
Click here to read customer feedback for this tea!

Truth be told, I was blown away the first time I tried this Chocolate Husk tea.
My expectation was a rather light flavour, but a surprising depth of deep natural and organic chocolate taste radiates from just two pinches steeped for a small amount of time.

Artisan (hand) made, these fermeted Cacao beans are roasted under fire and wood chips.
The husk is then removed. The husk is high in magnesium, fibre and potassium - and has the best taste from the whole bean!

    1. Add one heaped teaspoon to strainer and near boiling water
    2. Steep for 2-3 minutes, but strength will increase at 6-7 minutes. Many prefer stronger!
    3. This tea is also wonderful with milk (as you can imagine!).

    Okay, I’m convinced!

    Reading through the reviews of the Cacao Chocolate Husk Tea I thought “well, maybe it’s vaguely chocolatey in taste, but these are the opinions of tea drinkers, not hard core chocolate drinkers such as me”. Still, curiosity saw me ordering the small 40g pack which arrived with other tea varieties I decided to sample. It’s been almost a fortnight since I received the Cacoa Tea and this morning I actually got around to opening the packet. I followed the suggestion about crushing the husks before steeping for 7 minutes and cautiously took a sip... Wow! Everything that other reviewers have posted is true! So here I am, back on the Tealife site, nursing my second cup of Cacao Tea and ordering the 160g packet...

    Hi Liz, wow thank you I love this review :) We're reallllly hoping to get the price down this year further. It's always a bit of a pricey tea but we'll do our best.

    What a feel good treat!

    My morning pot of tea is now a heaped teaspoon of black tea and a spoonful of cacao chocolate tea. I have a cup with milk and honey and it tastes sweet and decadent. Love it.

    Hi Robyn thank you - that's a good combination and can imagine that would work well!

    Cocoa husk tea

    Delicious, and organic!
    I’m very pleased with my purchase.

    Hi Tracy, Thanks for your review! That's a good question and I'm still unsure why too! I'm trying to find out, along with trying to source this for a cheaper rate. The inside parts are called 'nibs' and really very very cheap when compared with the husk.

    This turned out to be so nice that we immediately ordered more as Christmas presents for our far away kids. Its very tasty just black (as I have it) or with milk (oat) as my wife prefers. Rich and with a chocolate aftertaste that lingers very pleasantly.

    Hi Ian - you're right about the aftertaste as that's the first thing I commented on when I tried this chocolate husk tea for the first time also. It was difficult with customs to get the organic version of this tea in, but it's been so popular that we'll continue to have it up on Tea Life. We'll work on getting the price down a little too.

    Chocolate fix without the guilt!

    Tastes super chocolately and is totally guilt free. What more could you want!

    Why buy online with Tea Life? What sets it apart?
    We're not just another tea brand.
    We focus on Australian produce and organic tea wherever possible.

    • Quality: Australian standards impose strict quality control on packing and Hygeine.

    • Health: The full remedial powers, taste and aroma of our tea are unlocked due to our organic and fresh produce.

      Tea Life is the best

      Haha thank you! I've shared this to our Facebook page :)
      Best Peppermint Tea

      I love peppermint tea and have tried many loose leaf and bag varieties over the years. This tea is the BEST one I have had. I could tell I was in for a magical experience from the moment I opened the packet. It tastes wonderful. I could not recommend this tea highly enough. I will be buying more in the future!

      Hi Sarah - wow what a great review, thank you! That's much appreciated. We've always got a lot on hand as we need to use this for a lot of other blends as well :)
      Great tea and great service

      The Teas are great taste and awesome quaility love drinking the night wish

      Hi Leanne, thank you - this one was created as it's different to the rest of the other bedtime teas such as goodnight sleeping.
      Another lovely mellow tea bloom

      The yellow chrysanthemum bloom is very beautiful sitting on it's bed of green as this bloom opens into a slightly aniseed smelling tea at first, but when fully brewed tastes like a mellow silver needle tea that has a very subtle, fruity, sweet overtone. It's not overpowering or dominating in anyway and is very refreshing.

      Hi Casey, thank you for your review! I really hope those samples have arrived....
      Happy with my tea

      Unable to purchase Decaf leaf tea from the supermarket It was refreshing to find that i could purchase this seemingly elusive product online at "Tea Life".
      The service was excellent and the tea arrived promptly. I'm very happy with my tea purchase and would recommend this company. Many thanks Tea Life.

      Hi Liz, thank you. We'd love to expand our decaf range actually but it's difficult to get a hold of. Hopefully this year will bring some new decaf teas!
