Cascara Organic Arabica Natural Herbal Cherry Tea Fruit
Cascara is the cherry-like fruit or husk surrounding the coffee bean. This is made from coffee trees in a plantation in Costa Rica. This is fast becoming a popular and mainstream beverage. Coffee beans start life as a cherry, which is picked and dried in the sun. This leaves a dried fruit with two green coffee seeds in the middle. Once it makes it to the mill, the seeds are removed and the dried fruit remains.
This fruit is popular in energy drinks. Tastes of single malt with a hint of wild honey. It’s great hot or cold!!
But that description does it injustice, and really cascara tastes, unlike any other tea.
