Teaesk – Brooklyn Cocoa

RRP: $17.95

Bronze
Non-toxic
Made from excellent ingredients including organic cacao nibs and Indian black tea, cacao husk and vanilla.
Ethical
All teaesk’s blends are manufactured in Australia, as well as hand-blended and packed by the Founder Melissa. The brand purchases certified organic ingredients and when sourcing from farmers, they ensure they are working under good conditions and are paid fairly.
Sustainable
Teaesk supports farmers using sustainable farming practices and purchases most of their single estate teas directly from the tea farms to ensure the money is going straight to the workers. The brand offers products that come in reusable pouches and compostable mailing bags and will soon be offering reusable jars for customers to purchase, with all refills coming in biodegradable packaging. Teaesk also encourages customers (with a product note) to use their single estate tea as a fertiliser for their garden after use.
Responsible
Teaesk supports two women's groups in India. Through one of the brand’s tea farms, they purchase handmade organic cotton tea bags from a women's help group, which provides these women with an income and the opportunity to learn new skills. The brand also supports a women's group called Saheli Women, which is a nonprofit in northern India that helps develop rural communities by empowering women through education and access to health clinics. This group of women makes all of Teaesk’s cotton bags.

What our experts say...

Loved all the little packaging details – the use of twine, the seed paper and tissue paper. Gorgeous! After 5 minutes of brewing the taste is strong and delicious and a joy to drink. I love their mission so much – supporting single origin tea where they are making sure of their responsibility to workers and empowering women in the workforce. Such a beautiful company to learn about.

Satisfying all my chocolate cravings without the sugar. A rich, full bodied chocolatey drink – delicious black and sweetened, however I prefer mine unsweetened and with a dash of milk. I love the warmth and comfort this provides and particularly appreciate that it is sourced from direct trade partnerships where everyone is paid fairly.

A deliciously chocolatey tea that strikes the perfect balance between black tea and cocoa. What I love most is that the taste of chocolate is light and subtle, yet well rounded and satisfying. The use of vanilla makes it sweet and comforting. A wonderful morning beverage or alternative to coffee. Love that the tea is locally blended and that the brand goes to such huge efforts to source organic ingredients directly from the farmers and support their local communities while doing so.

This clever organic combination of cacao and black tea makes for a well balanced hot beverage. The highly textural, rich brown coloured blend gives off decadent chocolate and vanilla bean aromas, while the flavour is more subtle. Sweet cacao meets with a malty Indian Assam black tea in this innovative Brooklyn Cocoa.
