slingshot cascara tea-crtsy nc madeToday’s Drink of the Week? Not your grandma’s iced tea. Cascara, aka the fruit that surrounds the coffee bean before its processed for roasting, has been making a wave in the drinks world as of late thanks to its sweet-tart, cherry-like flavors and subtle caffeinated boost, and today’s Drink of the Week—the Slingshot Cascara Tea—bottles up all that goodness into a summer-ready refresher. Cold-brewed in the same way Slingshot prepares its coffees, this cascara—sourced from award-winning coffee maven Aida Batlle’s farms—is all packaged up and ready for the warmer weather ahead. Keep an eye on Slingshot’s site for an official release in the next few weeks, or find it now as a part of the Pine State Snack Box online over at N.C. Made.
