What the heck is cacao husk tea? It’s a natural tonic infusion made from the husks of perfectly roasted cacao beans. It’s a unique brewed drink that sits somewhere in between dark chocolate and tea.
Are you up for a smooth and exhilarating chocolate tea packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants? Avanna's pure cacao tea contains only carefully selected cacao husk and nibs from their bean to bar chocolate factory. Add some honey, maple syrup, milk or spices to this infusion and you’re in for a real treat.
After trying this cacao husk tea for herself earlier this year, Tout de Sweet's owner (Jeanette) knew she had to bring this unique and flavourful tea to her customers.
Avanna means coming from the North in Inuktitut. Cath quit her geologist job in the James Bay region to pursue her quest to find the best cacao plantations. She filled her backpack and left for one year to discover cacao plantations across the world. Back in Montreal (with 23kg of Peruvian cacao hidden in her backpack), she got to work roasting, grinding, conching, and tempering. Avanna chocolate company was born.

Frostbites ginger syrup is to die for and a "must have" item for cold and flu season. Frostbites caramelizes ground up fresh ginger root with organic cane sugar and add fresh pressed ginger juice, to create this sweet and spicy elixir.
Mix the ginger syrup with sparkling water for slightly sweeter take on a ginger beer, or with hot water for a warming, spiced tea (a splash of bourbon makes a great toddy on greyer days).
Try using in making Moscow mules, dark and stormys or a Presbyterian.
This ginger syrup is a playful addition to your culinary arsenal, for livening up salad dressings and sauces.
250 ml bottle makes, on average 12-16 drinks
A typical drink will use ½ oz to 1 oz of syrup
A little more about Frostbites: With a promise of using predominately locally grown ingredients to make their syrups, instead of using the common artificially flavoured day-glo & flavoured ones, frostbites became known for their fresh, unique, whimsical flavours.
Peggy + Martyn knew they were on to something great when their farmer’s market booth became a weekly stop for kids of all ages. Alongside the boom of local distilleries in BC, customers started demanding to be able to take bottles of frostbites syrups home with them to stir up cocktails and craft sodas.
