From Yunomius

Rare Japanese mulberry tea, or kuwacha (桑茶), processed like sencha tea. Without the caffeine of green tea, it’s a great cleansing herbal tea.

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. -

Picked up a 10g sample of this with my order that arrived today. As it is caffeine free I am trying it tonight. The main note is one of grass. However this does not come with the bitterness of green tea. It is kind of neutral tasting, not really sweet and not really bitter. It is quite interesting. I am actually going to see if it will resteep. I only brewed about 8oz with 5g of leaf using 175 degree water for 3 min. In the end this is a hard to to recommend or not recommend. For someone who wants to try different herbals it is interesting.

I went and resteeped this. The second steep tastes better than the first. This might be worth ordering.
