'Kishr' is a nutritious "superfruit brew" that gets its name from Qishr, a traditional hot drink from Yemen that's made with coffee husks, ginger and cinnamon. While Kishr's branding clearly communicates that this is not a hot tea beverage, this type of drink is packaged in individual sachets and can be consumed as a coffee replacement.

One of the main ingredients in the Kishr drink is the coffee cherry, which is extremely rich in antioxidants and immunity-boosting agents. Even though the healthy drink is made with the coffee fruit, it is extremely low in caffeine and does not have a taste that reminds of coffee.

The rise in global coffee culture is creating plenty of room for alternative hot beverages like this one to emerge, especially as one that's like a hybrid of coffee and a herbal tea.
