Cascara could be described as a “blend” of coffee and tea but tastes more or less reminiscent of tea. These are dried peels of coffee strawberries, which leave a pleasant fruity-sweet taste when extracted with cold or hot water. Cascara is a mild caffeinated beverage as it contains several times less caffeine than coffee and is, therefore, suitable for many refreshing drinks. In addition, many people prepare it instead of morning green or black tea. Due to its high antioxidants and low caffeine content, many people feel more “fresh” and with much more energy after drinking cascara.
