The 2013 SCAA Wrap Up

from The Klatch Team


The Klatch team is very excited to introduce our new Cascara Tea. This high quality tea is made from coffee cherries, giving it a prominent, bright and unique flavorful profile.

Coffee cherry tea is an herbal tea made from the dried berries (or "cherries") of the coffee plant. It is also known as cascara, from the Spanish cáscara, meaning "husk", and is different from cascara sagrada tea, a powerful plant-based laxative. Coffee cherry tea is rarely produced for export, but is commonly drunk in some coffee-growing nations, notably Bolivia and, as the variant Qishr, in Yemen. It is commonly consumed in Bolivia, where it is referred to as Sultana, and is made of sun-dried and lightly toasted coffee cherries. It may also be mixed with sticks of cinnamon. It is also called "the poor man's coffee", and "the coffee of the Army". Coffee cherries contain caffeine, as does the tea, however the caffeine level in coffee cherry tea is quite high. The taste of coffee cherry tea is different from coffee, and has been described as somewhat sweet and cherry flavored, surprisingly pleasant.
