Kukicha is a traditional beverage in Japan that is made from the roasted stems
and leaves of the tea plant (Camellia Sinensis). Stems and leaves are
harvested in late fall from carefully selected aged plants and dry roasted in
giant cast iron caldrons. This process delivers a rich roasted flavor and
aroma. Our Kukicha is certified organic and is much lower in caffeine than
tea leaves and buds because it is comprised of mainly twigs and stems.
Kukicha is also perfect for blending with any of our black, green or oolong
teas for an interesting twist.
