Kukicha is a special type of Japanese tea which is made from the stems, stalks, and twigs of the tea plant. It is sometimes called ‘winter’ tea, and is traditionally harvested and processed in the fall. The flavour of kukicha is quite unique – it has a sweet, slightly nutty flavour with overtones of cream. When well brewed, kukicha is a very warming yet refreshing beverage, rich in antioxidants and low in caffeine. This organic tea aids in digestion and contains no chemical dyes.
