Houji Kukicha offers an elegant roasted aroma with unique natural sweetness from the stems. It is very high in calcium and will help keep your blood alkaline.
Kukicha brews a clear medium brown liquid, but it is still considered a green tea. Kukicha is produced by roasting twigs left over from the sencha production over high heat. The result is a savoury tea with a refreshing, roasted taste and virtually no bitterness. It contains no caffeine.
