Lilikoi Cacao

$16.95 USD

Portion


Lilikoi Cacao tastes like a passionfruit tea truffle. Luxurious notes of chocolate and lilikoi (passionfruit in Hawaiian) with a delicate sweet finish. It's part of the limited edition line of cacao tea that features single origin cacao shells and organic black tea.

Hawaiʻi is the only state in the U.S. that grows cacao, the tropical fruit used to make chocolate. The shell around the roasted cacao bean is removed and the inner nib is used to make chocolate. The shells, once a throw away by-product of chocolate making, is now re-purposed for its aromatic flavor and made part of this delicious tea.
