Unlike conventional tea leaves, which are derived from the Camellia sinensis plant and are high in caffeine, cacao tea comes from the seed of the cacao plant (that’s the one used to make chocolate!).
Cacao tea can be enjoyed hot or cold and is perfect for the summer months. Made from the raw cacao bean, cacao tea is a delicious hot beverage packed with antioxidants, minerals, and fiber. The mild, sweet flavor of cacao tea makes it a refreshing option for tea or coffee drinkers and is a welcome alternative to sugary sodas and energy drinks.
If you’re looking for a guilt-free healthy drink, cacao tea can be an enjoyable treat – with or without milk. Cacao tea is a great source of energy and works wonders as an instant mood booster. These antioxidant-rich benefits of cacao tea make it an ideal alternative to coffee and other caffeinated drinks.
Our cacao tea is 100% pure and organic and is completely naturally caffeine-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and GMO-free with no artificial flavouring, additives or preservatives.
Cacao tea is an investment in your health that delivers more antioxidants than green tea, improves cardiovascular function, reduces blood pressure, maintains normal body weight, supports digestion and even stimulates brain function.
Cacao tea also has a wide variety of other health benefits, making it even more desirable to consume. It contains Polyphenol, an antioxidant found in green tea that increases brain function and can help protect against certain cancers, as well as lowering the risk of heart disease by thinning blood and fighting LDL cholesterol. Cacao is rich in magnesium that provides a great natural energy boost and is also known for boosting memory and supporting heart health. Magnesium is also responsible for normal energy-producing metabolism, regulates fluid balance, promotes protein synthesis and helps maintain a strong immune system. It's also high in iron content, which is important for carrying oxygen throughout your body. Cacao tea is also rich in calcium, which strengthens bones and teeth while promoting healthy muscle contraction. Calcium is essential to the development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones (especially when paired with vitamin D).
Cacao tea is a delicious, low calorie beverage that can be enjoyed anytime of day.
Traditionally Grown and Harvested with Love
Our cacao tea is totally unique in the marketplace because it is made from loose-leaf cacao husks (also known as cacao shells) which surround the cacao bean. Our cacao tea is 100% natural and comprised of the highest quality ethically-sourced cacao husks which have been traditionally grown on plantations in Samoa.
We at The Koko Samoa work hard to do good. We choose to buy from local Samoan farmers instead of importing from other countries. And we choose to source organic ingredients whenever possible. We try to minimize our carbon footprint and are committed to protecting the environment. We believe in building meaningful relationships with each other and within our communities.
