Hot Chocolate Or Cocoa Tea?
Make your health a priority.
Sweet hot chocolate is great for morale and tastes amazing, but is there a guilt free alternative that gives you the same happy and comforting feeling? A hot and hearty drink with no calories, is a great way to turn a setback into a comeback and with Spring around the corner, we could all do with a sugarless spirit-booster.
CocoaTea, is a zero calorie, dark chocolate tasting tea, filled with health benefits just waiting to be unleashed into your body. It is no secret that cocoa is good for you as it contains a variety of elements, including antioxidants called flavonoids. CocoaTea contains more natural antioxidants in comparison to green tea and black tea. Take note that more antioxidants are released when it is heated. CocoaTea shows mild traces of caffeine to boost your energy levels and Theobromine, which acts as a happiness trigger to the brain, similar to eating quality chocolate, and leaves us smiling. In other parts of the world, cocoa tea is used as a medicinal drink to treat symptoms associated with altitude sickness, including nausea and headaches.
CocoaTea is 100% organic and natural. It is dark in colour and offers a smooth, rich and hearty taste. It is recommended to first drink it on its own, like any herbal tea. You can use your own discretion to add sugar or milk. After brewing, there is usually a fine slick on top of the tea, which is the reminisce of cocoa butter. CocoaTea is eco-friendly and locally produced in Cape Town, South Africa. The packaging was designed to eliminate plastic, and the tea bags themselves are made from a derivative of corn, making them entirely compostable and 100% organic.
We could all do with more chocolate in our lives, and this is one way of getting the satisfying feeling over and over again without the guilt.
“I really enjoy this tea! To me it tastes deliciously of chocolate – a very strong flavour! I like to add some hot soya milk to this to make a deliciously nutty-chocolate flavoured drink”.
“Very chocolatey and perfect if you’re wanting a hot, chocolatey drink that isn’t rich and milky.”
“This is so yummy I don’t even need to add sugar.”
