Refresh yourself with Coffee Leaf Tea

Real brewed coffee leaves from the Nicaraguan cloudforest
PRE-ORDER

The most refreshing tea you’ll ever drink, period.

Featuring rare antioxidants, light caffeine, and a smooth thirst-quenching taste, Wize Coffee Leaf Iced Tea is the perfect way to refresh your body and mind.
It doesn’t taste like coffee, and it tastes better than regular tea.
The coffee leaf has a full-bodied and lightly sweet taste on its own, unlike traditional tea from the camellia sinensis plant, that has many tannins and a generally bitter taste. With Coffee Leaf Tea, the coffee leaves do most of the heavy lifting for that nice lightly sweet taste that everyone wants in a healthy refreshing beverage. We added just 1g of cane sugar to bring that taste to the next level, creating a perfectly balanced drinking experience the whole fam can enjoy.

The coffee plant’s
best kept secret

The coffee leaf has been consumed for hundreds of years in Ethiopia and Indonesia but has never been crafted with tea-style techniques. An article in the New York Times from 1854 states that Indonesian locals prefer Coffee Leaf Tea to regular coffee beans because “it is more nutritious”.
An antioxidant powerhouse with mangiferin, chlorogenic acids, and EGCG
With all these rare and powerful antioxidants, it’s no wonder that people historically praised Coffee Leaf Tea for its hydrating, cleansing, and positive effects on the body. Mangiferin, a more recently studied polyphenol, has shown potential to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, and even inhibit the initiation, promotion, and spread of cancer cells. We’ve compiled all the academic studies for you to check these claims on our ‘Research page’.

Stabilize communities
with every sip

The coffee bean season is only three months long, and once it’s over, workers have to migrate and uproot their families to find off-season jobs, which leads to poor attendance in schools and widespread food security issues. On average, coffee communities in Central America will go through 3 months of hunger per year, typically the last 3 months of the off-season, when they’ve run out of savings from the winter coffee bean harvest.
We’ve already generated 75,000 work hours for farmers in need; help us reach 1 million!
Every can of Wize Iced Tea generates at least two minutes of employment for coffee farmers in need. This may not sound like much, but it adds up fast!
All our Coffee Leaf Tea is cultivated and crafted at our co-founder’s farm in the Nicaraguan cloudforest

My favorite way to rehydrate

My typical day as a clinical therapy specialist and sports performance coach is filled with client appointments from 7am to 8pm. I start my day with the Grapefruit or Original Wize tea and enjoy it on my drive to work. Upon arriving, I am gently energized by the smooth caffeine and rich flavor.

Being highly active, I drink Wize tea not just for the amazing taste and clean energy boost, but for its recovery benefits. As a source of antioxidants and polyphenols, it helps me feel focused and recharged. The fragrance alone is stress-numbing aroma therapy; I love savoring the scent before sipping it down. Plus, it’s nice to know that I’m contributing directly to farming communities that need support in the most difficult part of the year. Wize up!

Driven by health, inspired by innovation, motivated by impact

When Max (right) went to France for school in 2012, he overdosed on coffee during finals season and was ordered by his doctor to quit coffee and switch to tea. He never loved traditional green and black teas, so he started searching for alternatives that would be delicious, healthy, and ultimately sustainable for his body and the planet.

A month later, he and his French classmate Arnaud (left) were starting a new entrepreneurship class project. That first day of class in January 2013, he came across a study about the coffee leaf that proved its strong health benefits, light caffeine, and long history of use as an herbal infusion in Ethiopia and Indonesia. It also became apparent that coffee farms are very seasonal and farmers suffer from extremely volatile market prices and a long off-season where they are trimming off extra leaves but not using them for anything.

They began to ask themselves “why hasn’t anyone tried to craft or ferment the coffee leaves before, like they do in the traditional tea industry?” They had a hunch that they could create very special flavors and varieties if they applied the same tea-style methodology to the coffee leaf.

Together, the two decided that this idea was worth pursuing for their class project.

Global problems call for global collaboration

At the end of the school year, they decided to put theory into practice and flew to Nicaragua to find some coffee farms. The first farmers didn’t even believe them, asking them why they were interested in the leaf to begin with. “It has no value,” farmers would say. Others were curious, but not enough to get involved.

During their search, they kept meeting other coffee importers and buyers. One of their new connections thought the coffee leaf idea was brilliant, and introduced them to Enrique Ferrufino, a third-generation coffee farmer who leads the country in ethics and innovation.

When they brought the idea to Enrique, his eyes lit up with inspiration as he started brainstorming different ways of cultivating, crafting, and ultimately creating a new delicious drink that has the potential to revolutionize the industry for the better.

One year later, Enrique joined Wize Coffee Leaf as an equal-equity founder and bolstered the team with decades of coffee-growing experience. This team-focused aspect makes Wize Coffee Leaf vertically integrated from the ground up, and ensures that the farmers and their workers’ have decision-making power for long-term growth and sustainability.

The Wize ethos

We can all be better and do better if we make wize choices. We’re realists; yes, we have a mountain to climb to solve global problems, but with small incremental action from everyone, we can write the future that we want. The pen is in our hands.

Wize is redefining wisdom for the new generation. Acknowledging the negatives, creating the positives, and relishing the challenge instead of shying away from it. Big things have small beginnings, and this is how we choose to live our lives; with purpose.

Think outside the bean and Wize up.

Delicious iced tea with a social mission
I wasn’t expecting to love the taste of it as much as I do. I have replaced much of my coffee consumption with Wize Tea. Can’t recommend it enough.
- CARLIE C
I didn’t know what to expect but I loved it
Everyone in the house so far likes it too. It’s not green tea or any tea you’ve had before but that’s a good thing. The flavor stands on its own as fresh without being grassy, deep without being malty. Enjoy!
- JOHN R
