Cacao shell tea has been gaining popularity for it's healthy (antioxidants) benefits, but we also find it appealing for its unique flavor profile. It's also a fantastic use of a product that has been waste in the production of chocolate.
Right after steeping, this tea presents a deep spicy aroma with a chocolate-y backbone. It smells and tastes like a rich spice cake with a dark chocolate finish. You might find the chocolate shells give this tea a slightly bitter taste, but it's more akin to a raw cacao flavor. It has a pleasing spicy finish to the sip.

Covered teapots retain more heat, therefore the Teapot method requires less time for steeping.
Add more tea to your taste to make the tea richer or stronger, rather than leaving the tea to steep longer than directed.

I love the little hint of chocolate that this tea gives you as you sip it. It's a great tea to snuggle up with on a cold day.
