Acerola Tea “Rainforest Understory”
Our Acerola Tea is perfectly blended with sencha green tea, pineapple bits, and calendula. Acerola, also known as Barbados Cherry (Malpighia emarginata), is a ‘superfruit’ high in antioxidants, and therefore extremely good for you.
Acerola Tea “Rainforest Understory” is part of our Rainforest Collection of Teas. We created this tea to celebrate the Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. A safe, natural place for young children and their families. Visit, and above all, you will 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 Tea Company uses these components as a guide in naming our teas.
