True to our mission to offer sustainable products and at the same time suggest flavourful, natural goods, no wonder why we had an instant crush with the cacao husks! After monthslong sampling and research, we began to collaborate with small scale organic chocolatiers who put quality first and treat the cacao husks with the same care and love as they do for the beans. In a more colourful mood, we developed a new range of tisanes which are still 100% pure and natural but take the concept of drinking a cup of tea to a whole new level!
