Cascara Seca Coffee Cherry Tea

Coffee cherry tea is a herbal tea made from the dried skins of the coffee fruit. Often it is more than the skins that are used, and include the dried berries (or “cherries”) of the coffee plant that remain after the coffee beans have been collected from within. It is also known as cascara, from the Spanish cáscara, meaning “husk

Coffee cherries contain caffeine, as does the tea, though while the tea is popularly understood to have a high level of caffeine, it actually only has about a quarter the caffeine levels of coffee. Cascara is known to be high in antioxidants. The taste of coffee cherry tea is different from coffee, and has been described as sweet and cherry flavored, surprisingly pleasant. Due to its natural sugar levels Cascara Seca is an excellent choice for home brew beer.

Cascara Seca has the highest naturally occurring volume of antioxidants with a total of 1300 international units per 8 oz. serving.
