This is the first time i have ever tried coffee cherries. I like how i can taste a hit of dark roast coffee in this blend. the chai part in this is quite mild, not much stands out except the cardamom. Cascara is the skin of the coffee cherry. Normally in the production of coffee the skin is considered waste and goes into compost. However, if the cherry is dried and separated it can be steeped and used to make an herbal brew with some caffeine. This is an interesting find, but I do not think that I will re-purchase.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Coffee, Dried Fruit

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
