Acerola is a ‘superfruit’ high in antioxidants, also known as Barbados Cherry (Malpighia emarginata). Our Acerola Green Tea is perfectly blended with sencha green tea, pineapple bits and calendula.
Acerola Green Tea “Rainforest Understory” is part of our Rainforest Collection of Teas created to celebrate the Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. A safe, natural place for young children and their families to develop a life-long appreciation for the living world through outdoor play, discovery, and learning.
The four elements of a Rainforest include; the Forest Floor, a Shrub Layer or Understory, the Canopy Layer and an Emergent Layer. Local Coffee + Tea has used these components as a guide in naming our Rainforest Collection of Teas.
Join us in celebrating the world’s rainforests and those dedicated to protecting these living treasures.
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf Acerola Green Tea. We also suggest steeping all our teas multiple times for even more cups of great tea.
