Kona Coffee Cherry Tea – 4 oz. - Sold Out

Farm Tours Closed Saturday, October 12

We are currently Sold Out of Cascara – Coffee Cherry Tea

Interestingly, Cascara is neither coffee nor tea as it is made from the dried skin and fruit of the coffee cherry, not the leaves or coffee bean itself. Within 24-48 hours of being picked, coffee cherries enter the pulping process to extract the bean from the fruit. The skins are removed and are then discarded by most processors.

Harvesting and drying cherry skins has proven to produce a healthful and surprisingly pleasant drink and helps to reduce some of the waste. Yes, Coffee Cherry Tea does contain caffeine! On average, perhaps one quarter the amount found in your usual cup of coffee. More importantly, Coffee Cherry Tea contains an abundance of antioxidants providing many medicinal benefits.

Expect a somewhat sweet tea that can be enjoyed hot, perhaps with a little of your favorite honey (we recommend Lehua Honey!), or cold as iced tea.

Preparation Instructions: Here at Mountain Thunder, we add about a tablespoon of dried tea to 6-ounces of boiling water and steep for 15 minutes. Experiment a bit to find the ideal amount of Cascara and steeping method to suit your personal tastes. It will keep in the refrigerator for as much as five days!
