Martha Washington's Cacao Shell Tea Tin - 20 teabags with roasted cacao shells, blended with peppermint leaves

History: Martha Washington enjoyed drinking cacao shell tea, which she made from roasted shells and sipped at breakfast. George Washington wrote to his agent, “She will, . . . thank you to get 20 Lbs of the shells of Cocoa nuts, if they can be had of the Chocolate makers."

Tasting notes: Aroma of toast before brewing. Steeping in hot water unleashes a tonic of chocolate. The brew yields a full-bodied, slightly bitter infusion with strong notes of chocolate, and light flavors of melon.  Peppermint is added as a natural complement to the flavor of cacao. 

Caffeine: Cacao shell tea is caffeine-free, but it does contain other natural stimulants.  

Brewing:  Suggested serving per 10oz cup:  1 Teabag, 205 degree water.  Cacao shells take 10 minutes to infuse their full flavor.  

NOTE:  During initial processing and roasting, Cacao Shells may be exposed to  Nuts, Soy, and Dairy.
