Cacao Medicina is a new 100% Ceremonial Grade Peruvian Cacao brand founded by Fiona Teo.
Fiona sourced cacao from Peru and connected with numerous cacao farmers until she discovered the ideal, ethical, and sustainable source. The Peruvian farmer, Luz, began cultivating cacao due to her passion for cacao ceremonies. Inspired to share this sacred plant medicine with her community, Luz initiated this small family farm.
Cacao husk tea offers a delightful experience with its rich and nuanced flavours. As part of sustainable farming, farmers keep the cacao husks after peeling them off the cacao beans. You might notice notes of cacao, with a hint of floral and fruity undertones. The taste is smooth, comforting, and warming.
Brewing cacao husk tea allows these flavours to unfold, creating a warm and soothing beverage. It's a great choice for those looking to enjoy the essence of chocolate in a gentler form. It's particularly beautiful to savor cacao husk tea on rainy days or during cold weather.
Cacao husk tea is so simple for those who need a quick cacao fix but don't have time to brew the pure cacao paste in the morning!
In our work with Cacao Ceremonies, it is crucial to consume cacao products that are closest to the source. This deepens our connection with this ancient plant medicine. Cacao has been utilized in Mesoamerica for over 5000 years. By supporting small Peruvian farmers, we also pay homage to the lands that gave birth to the Spirit of Cacao.
