Health benefits of kukicha tea
What is Kukicha?
Kukicha is a Japanese tea made from the twigs and stems of the same plant that black tea and green tea come from.
Kukicha, also known as twig tea or 3 year tea, is aged after harvest and roasted. Kukicha tea is also known as three years tea because the stems and branches that are used to do it have been in the tea plant for at least three years, so they have lost virtually all of the caffeine (only kukicha tea is between 0.5 and 1% caffeine) but, however, have absorbed all the multiple properties and vitamins of nature around them.
Kukicha tea has a unique flavor. It tastes sweet, creamy and slightly nutty. Really nice for every time!
