Is it coffee? Is it tea? It’s actually a bit of both. Cascara is made from the husks of the coffee cherry, although it doesn’t taste anything life coffee. The husks are removed and usually discarded when coffee beans are processed, but when used for tea, nothing goes to waste. Brewed for centuries in some parts of the world, Cascara is new to the United States. Like most teas, it is steeped in hot water, but can also be cold brewed.
