Kuwacha Sencha – Mulberry Leaf Tea
Rare Japanese mulberry tea, or kuwacha (桑茶), is very similar to a light sencha without the caffeine.
This tea (or more accurately, tisane) was made with leaves grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers in the area between Kesennuma and Minami-sanriku in Iwate Prefecture. A rich but delicate sencha-like tea but without the caffeine, enjoy kuwacha mulberry tea straight or with milk.
Kuwacha, like sencha (Japanese green tea), can be prepared in a teapot.
