New Year with Cacao Hull Tea

What better way to kickoff the new year than to discover the joys of cacao hull tea - a delicious, stimulating, healthy alternative to coffee during the day.

Cacao hull tea is a great alternative for replacing caffeine with a different stimulant called "theobromine", which offers a similar lift but in a different way. Both are similar molecules, but affect different parts of the body more so than the other. In a nutshell, caffeine affects the nervous system, while theobromine affects smooth muscle tissues and increases blood flow. (If you want a technical comparison, check out this article.) This is great news if you, like some of us at Intrigue Chocolate, are sensitive to caffeine but still want a list in the morning.

 

Roasted Cacao Hulls:

This is the thin, papery layer that surrounds the whole cacao bean, and have the same complex and delightful aromas.

Cacao hulls make a great tea and coffee alternative (or addition!). They are rich in theobromine, a gentle and long-lasting stimulant that doesn’t trigger the jitters or anxiety of caffeine.

Directions:

  • 1.5 tsp per 12oz mug
  • We recommend using a large tea basket or a French press, though it works just as well to pour your finished brew through a mesh strainer or paper filter.
  • Cacao hulls infuse best in very hot water (just off the boil) and a longer time (4-8 minutes).
  • They never become bitter, so don’t worry if you’ve left it too long!

Ingredients: roasted cacao hulls

3oz resealable bag.
