The good folks at Tisano sent me a couple of goodies! Tisano makes the first pure 100% chocolate tea that gives you all the benefits of chocolate, but has no fat, calories, or sugar.
This bag smelled like a bag of chocolate chips! This tea comes from Venezuela and is the first tea to use the shells of the cacao bean. The shell is also very high in magnesium and potassium and Vitamin D and is comprised of 80% insoluble fiber and 20% soluble fiber. (from the company’s website).
The tea was delicious! You could definitely get away with drinking it as is, but I added a little sugar… I couldn’t help myself. This would definitely be a great tea for yourself or another chocolate lover in your life… a fun twist on chocolates for Valentine’s Day… never too early!
You can buy Tisano Chocolate Tea here.
They also sent me these!
These nibs taste like chocolate covered espresso beans to me, but without making me all crazy. They’re a fun snack when you’re looking for that chocolate fix.
I found these for sale here. From that site: “Cacao beans are the base for all chocolate and as such are the healthy part of dark chocolate—minus the sugar. Made from 100% cacao beans, they are bursting with antioxidants, flavonoids, magnesium and potassium.”. See, chocolate is good for you!
These products are both delicious, and with their focus on building partnerships with the farms the cacao comes from and their commitment to sustainable farming, you can feel good while eating and drinking them.
I was sent a complimentary sample of the Tisano Chocolate Tea and Cacao Nibs, all opinions and experiences are my own.
