Our choco tea blends... what's in it that's good for me?
Besides the feel good factor of CHOCOLATE IS SELF-CARE our tea blends DO have some significant health benefits. The list below only accounts for the base of our teas...the cacao hull or sometimes called husk. Each tea blend has additional assets depending on the added organic ingredients.
- Rich in nutrients Being a cacao bean by-product, the husks contain similar nutrients to the beans, such as B vitamins, vitamin A, iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.
- Great for diabetics Cacao hull tea has no sugar or additives, and will not affect blood sugar levels. (Excellent news!)
- Packed with antioxidants Cacao hull tea is burtsing with antioxidants, which are thought to reduce damage caused by free radicals and inflammation.
- Low in calories Our tea base is free from sugar, gluten and additives, it’s naturally low in calories. (An all around win!)
