Kukicha (茎茶) twig tea, is a Japanese blend made of stems and twigs. It is available as a green tea or in more oxidised processing. Our Kukicha has a unique flavor and aroma among teas, due to its being composed of parts of the tea plant that are excluded from most other teas. Our Kukicha has been grown with a non-chemical, pesticide-free, natural farming method.
Also, Kukicha is one of the preferred teas of the macrobiotic diet.
