DESCRIPTION

Cacao Kisses is a creative blend of organic Colombian black tea with cacao nibs and shells that produces a unique and truly delicious flavor profile. The cacao is from Tumaco, a region in the Colombian Pacific (South West), which is known to produce one of the most aromatic cacaos in the country used to make extra fine chocolates.

Expertly crafted by our friends at the Bitaco Tea Estate located on the western slope of the Andes mountains. This organic black tea is grown in rich volcanic soil at elevations of 1,800-2,000 M.  Bitaco has been growing and manufacturing tea for over 50 years but in 2013 they collaborated with Darjeeling tea growers to change their manufacturing processes which has resulted in the production of some very fine teas. 

DRY LEAF: Full leaf, long and wiry with pieces of cacao nibs and shells. Rich aroma of cacao.

INFUSION: Notes of cacao, pepper and touch malty.

CUP: Dark amber with notes of cacao, roasted nuts and pepper. The cacao flavors are in fine balance with the tea without overpowering the latter. The balance of all the flavors make this tea decidedly different from many other "chocolate teas" in the market.

Still waiting

I know I will love this tea when I receive it if it hasn't been lost in the mail. I love all the tea from Happy Earth bout it has been almost 10 days. It's not Happy Earth's fault the Post Office still has my tea in Rochester.

Delicious

I wasn't sure what to expect from a cacao tea, but in my opinion this tea is very well balanced. A delicious black tea with a slight hint of cacao.

Dark chocolate

This is a perfect black tea for dark chocolate lovers. It isn't sweet and the cacao flavor is definitely there, but....somehow subtle? Its flavor does not compete with the flavor of the black tea. The tea overall tastes earthy and deep.

Just a touch of cacao

Very smooth and balanced. Just the right amount of cacao.
