Coffee cherry tea is a herbal tea made from the dried cherries of the coffee plant. It is also known as cáscara, from Spanish, meaning 'husk.' Coffee cherry tea is rarely produced for export, but is commonly drunk in some coffee-growing nations, notably Bolivia and, as the variant Qishr, in Yemen.

Coffee cherries contain caffeine, as does the tea, though while the tea is popularly understood to have a high level of caffeine, it actually only has about a quarter the caffeine levels of coffee.
