Premium Cacao Husk Teas

The Husk Mill’s teas are blended locally in Stanmore, Sydney. We only use the highest quality ingredients, and all our blends are preservative free.

We – Cherylea and Elaina – the founders of The Husk Mill, have been friends since we met in kindergarten. During travels in Peru, we discovered cups of warming and seemingly indulgent cacao husk tea – and, after a little research, were amazed to find that cacao husks are extremely high in antioxidants, along with other minerals and vitamins, as well as being completely free from caffeine. We’d been searching for a drink that would fit into our health-focused but busy lives, and it was out of these discoveries that The Husk Mill was born.

The benefits of drinking The Husk Mill teas

Our teas are high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
The cacao husks we use in our blends carry many of the same antioxidant agents as the cacao bean, as well as being high in magnesium, potassium and fibre. Additionally, there is a lower fat content in the husks than the bean itself.

Our cacao teas are 99.5% caffeine-free.
Cacao and its husk contain theobromine, a stimulant which differs from its cousin caffeine. Theobromine has a slow release effect and helps release your body’s natural endorphins to give you that much needed pick-me-up whether you drink it morning, noon or night. 

Our teas are preservative, and artificial additive-free and 100% vegan.
Our teas are completely natural and preservative-free – there are no added flavours or starches. They are vegan and contain no gluten so you can enjoy our blends knowing you are doing your body a world of good. 

Are there any health precautions I should be aware of when drinking cacao tea?
Our blends are a wonderfully healthy alternative to other beverages that often contain a multitude of additives. With this said, our teas are not recommended as a replacement for medically prescribed treatments or medications. Always consult a medical professional for any health conditions and questions that relate to pregnancy or any pre-existing conditions.
