Kukicha

We are so excited to offer one of our favorite green teas!  Kukicha (“twig tea”) awakens your senses with a floral aroma and a mild green vegetal flavor, with notes of buttered popcorn. This Kukicha also has an added roasting step in the production process, lending to a slightly toasted flavor.  Being created from the twigs of Camellia sinensis variety: sinensis ‘Yabukita’, it is lower in caffeine than other leaf-based green teas.  (Yields approximately 22-24 servings per 2 oz.)
