5 Reasons Cacao Tea Is A Great Menopause Tea

Green tea has long been held up as the best of healthy teas for menopause, but a new kind of tea has recently appeared that takes taste into account.

Cacao husk tea is made from the fibrous outer shells of cacao beans, and when these husks are steeped in water, it creates a beverage that shares the same flavor as chocolate. In addition to the health benefits the tea is believed to have, cacao husk tea is also environmentally friendly.

The cacao husks have traditionally been considered a waste by-product of other food products, but the use of it as the main ingredient in tea turns it into a sustainable and highly rated product. 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 is amazing in both the hot and cold 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 addicts and is a welcome alternative to sugary sodas and energy drinks.

Think of cacao husk tea as a rich, dark hot chocolate but without any sugar, dairy or gluten. Out of all the ways to taste chocolate, drinking cacao husk tea is easily the healthiest.

5 Reasons Cacao Tea Is The 'Menopause Tea'

1. Cacao tea is nutritious

As a cacao bean by-product, the husks contain similar nutrients to the beans, such as B vitamins, vitamin A, iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.

2. Cacao tea has mood boosting properties

Cacao husk tea contains no sugar or additives, and contains mood boosting properties.

3. Cacao tea is packed with antioxidants

Cacao husk tea contains antioxidants, which are believed to counteract damage caused by free radicals and inflammation.

4. Cacao tea has no caffeine

The cacao husk tea contains theobromine, which is a naturally occurring compound found in cacao pods and mugwort. It’s a slow release stimulant that provides a gentle pick-me-up without the harsh fall you get from caffeine.

5. Cacao tea is low in calories

As cacao husk tea is free from sugar, gluten, additives, and preservatives, it’s naturally low in calories.

If you’re looking for a guilt-free healthy drink, cacao tea can be a delightful thing – with or without milk. Cacao tea is an excellent source of energy and works wonders as an instant mood booster. These antioxidant-rich benefits of cacao tea make it a superb substitute to coffee and other caffeinated drinks.
