Cacao Culture Farms is a social enterprise that seeks to help cacao farmers and encourage local food entrepreneurs to use high-quality, local, and ethically sourced cacao products from the Philippines. As of now, they specialize in growing and trading high-quality fermented cacao beans, but they are slowly developing cacao-based products to showcase how great and flavorful our local cacao beans are.
I thought this would taste as good as the other brand’s cacao tea :( I bought this one since it came in tea bags. The taste was very bland. I did not remove the tea bag just so I could get more flavor in, but still could barely taste the cacao.2 days ago
I absolutely love this. At first it was a little weird thinking about drinking chocolate husk steeped in water but then I had a taste and it was so good! Like drinking hot chocolate without that thick indulgent consistency. You also know it’s guilt-free because it’s literally cacao husk steeped in water. I recommend steeping at least 5 minutes before drinking. I just keep the tea bag in my water the entire time actually. The aroma and flavor are amazingly chocolatey. I’ve finished two bags of this already and hope they keep restocking this.about 1 month ago
