About our teas
what are cacao husks ?
Cacao Husks are the fibrous outer shells of the cacao bean, which when steeped make a lovely tisane. During the chocolate making process, cacao beans are harvested, fermented and dried. The beans are poured into a winnowing machine, where they're cracked open and the nibs are separated from the husks. The husks we source are grown right here in Australia.
how does it taste?
Our teas have been crafted to deliver a delicate, sophisticated cacao experience. One sip is subtly reminiscent of enjoying a piece of quality dark chocolate - creamy, bitter and naturally sweet. It is a way to enjoy cacao in an entirely new way -you will enjoy flavours of cacao that you may not have experienced before. Our teas leave you feeling light as they are 100 % natural.
how should I drink the husk mill's teas and tisanes?
Our range of teas have been designed to be enjoyed either black or with milk of your choice. We do, however, suggest a splash of milk and a sweetener to bring out the chocolate flavours in the tea. Steep one tablespoon in boiling water for about 6-7 minutes (or longer if you prefer). They can be enjoyed hot or cold.
where are the husk mill's cacao teas made?
We handcraft all of our teas in Newtown, Sydney. We create our signature blends using Australian Cacao husks sourced from farms in Queensland and use the highest quality organic, preservative-free and additive-free ingredients.
