Our Kukicha Twig Tea is of a green tea quality and largely composed from organic cultivation by leaf stalks, the so-called “Kuki”, which are obtained during the production of Sencha or Bancha. It is, therefore, nearly free of caffeine, but rich in trace elements. Toasted Kukicha is a particular green tea specialty with a strong, sweetish taste. Despite it’s characteristic appearance, its taste is discreet and thus makes it an enjoyable experience. It is suitable both during the day and in the evening.

- Notes of wood and toasted nuts; while not sweet in the beginning, it yields a nice caramel finish, evocative of molasses and burnt marshmallows.
