IN DEPTH REVIEWS OF COFFEE LEAF TEA

"The finish is wildflower honey sweet with a hint of straw, the honey tones lingered for a bit." - Amanda on Steepster

"Bottom line: An interesting and tasty new-old invention, that I would definitely recommend to anyone!" - Levente on Steepster

"This was a very unique “tea”…it reminded me of a black tea in some ways and a green tea in others. It was slightly grassy, but also had an earthy undertone. It was pleasantly smooth with no astringency or unpleasant aftertaste." - Inkling on Steepster

"This is really interesting. It’s earthy and grassy, and there’s a sweetness at the back of my throat that is reminiscent of licorice, but not the same flavour and not overpowering. In many ways this is very like tea and in other ways, not so much. I could draw comparisons to Japanese greens, pu erhs and herbals for the various elements. Definitely worth a try and a tasty cup. Flavors: Earth, Grass, Licorice, Sweet" - Anlina on Steepster

Risks and challenges

Our project will be able to create a real change than can impact thousands of lives in Latin America, starting with Nicaragua.

We already found our pioneer, Armando, who has realized the huge potential that this brew could have on the industry. Now, we want to show to all farmers in the region that this alternative is sustainable and has a real demand.

This is where we need you, to help us change this industry for the better, by showing your support for coffee leaf tea, so that more coffee families can implement this solution, and finally make the most of their hard work.

It has now been almost 2 years since we started making coffee leaf tea a reality. We've researched and developed the best principles of coffee leaf cultivation and experimented how to create the best brew, too. But this is the furthest we can go without outside funding.

Our coffee leaves are finalizing their growth, and will be ready to harvest in March 2015. Our partner awaits impatiently to start harvesting the leaves on his plantation and our manufacturing partner in Vancouver is anxious to start packaging. We've conducted independent lab tests to ensure that this tea is safe to drink, and it has been fully approved by Health Canada. We've also conducted ORAC antioxidant testing in Boston to reveal the truth about green tea and coffee leaf tea.

Rewards will be available in April 2015, when our first round of product is finalized and ready to distribute. We will continually keep you all updated as to the progression of the project, the use of your funds, and the shipment of your rewards.

Thank you for your support!
