Colonial Williamsburg Cacao Shell & Citrus Tea
Colonial Williamsburg fine teas are specially blended for us, and include varieties that delighted tea enthusiasts in the 18th century as much as they do tea connoisseurs today.
Cacao Citrus Tea is a chocolate shell infusion with orange and lemon. This loose blend includes roasted cacao shells, orange peel, and lemon peel and is beautifully packaged in a 1.5 oz canister in Charleston, South Carolina by the Oliver Pluff Company exclusively for Colonial Williamsburg. Includes brewing tips and historical notes.
Martha Washington enjoyed drinking cacao shell tea, which she made from roasted shells and sipped at breakfast. George Washington wrote to his agent, "She will, ... thank you to get 20 Lbs of the shells of Cocoa nuts, if they can be had of the Chocolate makers."
