I’m drinking pure cacao nibs…what are you drinking!?
When I got this from Supple Skin Boutique I was puzzled as I have never drank them straight-up/stand alone. I have been eye balling them tho because the aroma is heavenly!
I thought I would jump and this morning and try them out! I was amazed at how light these infused…it’s a pale/light yellow with a bit of texture to it. I went with the 4-5 minute infusion method…it suggests up to 5. After infusing it still smells like chocolate – not nearly as intense as prior to steeping but still there…there is a cookie-like hint of a smell underneath, too, and I like that!
If one was going to experiment and do their own blends this would be perfect to add in the mix! It’s so pure! Raw! In the more simple, organic form!
As for the taste…it’s more subtle than I thought it would be based on the aroma when I first opened the bag! It’s a little brothy…which was a surprise…but it tastes yummy! There is a hint of sweetness trying to hide but there is a wonderful darker-cocoa taste that also seems to have a slight woodsiness to it, too.
It is pretty darn creamy, too, I might add.
So…grimace! Laugh if you will…I’m drinking PURE Cacao Nibs and I am liking it! Bwahahahaha!
