Hala Tree Hawaiian Cascara Tea
Hala Tree will not let any part of their excellent 100% Kona Coffee go to waste!
Cascara means “peel” or “skin” in Spanish, and is made from the dried fruit (“cherry”) of the coffee bean. While very popular in other areas of the world, it is fairly new in the United States. Cascara has a tart, yet sweet flavor that somewhat resembles cherries, though it is more similar to apple cider or tamarind. You can drink it as is, or add a cinnamon stick or a couple of cloves. In hot weather try making it as an iced tea and dropping in an orange wedge!
This fruity infusion has caffeine (about 1/4 of the amount in a cup of coffee) plus antioxidants and vitamins, making it a natural energy drink.
