With notes of lime, honey, and mandarin
Cascara, also known as Coffee Cherry Tea, is made from the husk that surrounds the coffee beans. Don't expect the flavors of coffee from this low caffeine "tea." Cascara has a wide range of flavors just like coffee. This particular cascara has lime, honey, and mandarin notes. Serve hot or cold, with or without sweeteners! We love to add an assortment of spices depending on our mood. This ancient beverage is enjoyed in many coffee growing countries and known for its high anti-oxidant content and sustainable and eco-friendly health benefits. Brew a cup and discover this amazing beverage for yourself!
