drank Cacao Tea by Micacao
735 tasting notes

Got this in this month’s Sips By box. I’ve never tried a pure cacao tea before. The dry mix smells heavenly, like fresh baked brownies. Steeps up an orangey-brown color. The longer you let this steep, the better for the flavor— you can’t really oversteep it. You also have to let the water cool down quite a bit to get the full flavor. Tastes very earthy and chocolatey, just like you’d expect. Manages to taste just like chocolate without being sweet, which I appreciate, as I don’t like sweet teas. It’s pretty good!

Flavors: Cacao, Dark Chocolate, Earth, Nutty

Preparation
2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Is it just cacao nibs? I have a small jar that I have used as additives, but never tried steeping them entirely on their own.
