What is cacao husk tea?
Everyone loves sipping on coffee and gorging on chocolates in their day-to-day lives, but they are loaded with caffeine and sugar which is not healthy for your body if consumed in excess.

Why drink cacao beverages?
Using cacao husk tea either in a ceremony or as a part of a daily routine is neither intense nor a psychedelic experience, as other plant medicines can be. Rather, cacao gently nudges the heart chakra open, gifting benefits such as emotional embodiment and spiritual connection.
Cacao allows the drinker to quiet the mind and focus on good intentions either for the future or maybe just for the day, momentarily pausing that endless battle between head and heart!
In addition to its subtle entheogenic effects, cacao increases energy levels and concentration, illuminates a pathway to creativity, and balances the male and female energies within the body. Cacao also improves blood-flow and circulation.
Drinking cacao with intention enhances and deepens daily practices like meditation, yoga, and conscious dance.

How to prepare cacao husk tea
Apart from the physical preparation of the actual cacao drink itself, time should be taken to focus on intentions and prayers. Some people sing medicine songs during the preparation and serving of cacao husk tea.
To prepare cacao husk tea, simply boil some water and add a handful of husks, then let sit for a few minutes. You can also add spices such as cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods.
Pro tip: You can reuse the cacao husk over and over again! Just leave it in the kettle and add a bit more with each boil. Letting the tea sit overnight will result in very flavorful tea.
If someone has a heart condition or finds themselves to be sensitive to the effects of the cacao husk tea, they should start off slowly.
