Cacao tea is a 100% plant based natural drink made from cacao husks. At times cacao tea is referred to as chocolate tea or cocoa tea due to its taste – however in actual fact cacao husk tea tea does not have the additives that chocolate and cocoa products often do.
Cacao Husks are the fibrous outer shells of the cacao bean, which when steeped create a beverage that tastes just like chocolate. During the chocolate making process, cacao beans are harvested, fermented and dried. The beans are poured into a winnowing machine, where they're cracked open and the nibs are separated from the husks. They then go on to form the 'tea leaves' in our cacao tea blends without any added flavours or additives.
One sip is reminiscent of enjoying a piece of high-quality dark chocolate – delicious... and the best part is you can add as much or as little sweetener as you like! It is a way to enjoy cacao in an entirely new way – you will enjoy flavours of cacao you have never experienced before. Our teas have been crafted to deliver a delicate, sophisticated cacao experience and will leave you feeling light, as they are 100% natural.
Cacao has something similar to caffeine in it called theobromine, and the effects can be similar. Caffeine and theobromine are both alkaloids. Cacao beans usually contain about 1% theobromine. Like caffeine, theobromine blocks adenosine receptors, increasing alertness but isn’t as potent as caffeine. Theobromine has also been identified as one of the compounds contributing to chocolate's reputation as an aphrodisiac.
While you should always seek the advice of your healthcare professional, cacao is often considered to be a superfood with unique qualities including; the ability to lower insulin resistance, protect your nervous system (high in resveratrol antioxidants), shield nerve cells from damage, reduce risk of heart disease and strokes, and lowers blood pressure. Never replace professional medical treatment with cacao, and always seek guidance from your doctor.On a more fun note, cacao can be a mood booster because it is reputed to increase levels of certain neurotransmitters that promote a sense of well-being. And the same brain chemical that is released when we experience deep feelings of love – phenylethylamine – is found in chocolate.Generally, organic cacao is also rich in minerals: magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper and manganese.
Through Future Proof Samoa's partnership with Brown Girl Woke, we get to a part of inspiring, educating and empowering young females to lead culture and policy changes for a transformative society. Initiatives include providing clean drinking water in Samoa where needed, raising awareness about domestic violence and sexual abuse. Having three daughters of our own, we stand behind this mission 100%.In addition we also support Talofa Kids, we are helping to bring child abuse to a halt. Their vision is to see children thriving in a safe and progressive Samoa and we couldn't be happier about being a part of their mission. Their work includes training workshops and open platforms for discussion, seeking to end crimes being committed against children.Through Future Proof Samoa's partnership with Soul Talk, proceeds will go to supporting a qualified team of qualified counsellors, as well as aid work for vulnerable children, youth, couples, families and individuals of all ages and from different religious denominations. Student and youth support includes migratino concerns, drug and alchol issues and abuse (phyiscal, emotional, sexual).Beyond our donations to Future Proof Samoa, we strive for sustainable materials, packaging, shipping and zero-waste production. We believe that the privilege of doing business means actively investing in the livelihoods of families as they plant, harvest and sell cacao. We can't do it alone either. In addition to our own plantations, we also purchase from other villages and distributors who share the same heart as we do, and we aren't afraid of attaching a high value to the cacao we source.
