Made from the leaf stalks, called "kuki," which are harvested during the production of Sencha or Bancha, kukicha is a unique tea that is naturally low in caffeine, but rich in trace elements which give it a complex and unique flavor. This organic toasted kukicha has a mild nutty flavor with a full body, which gives way to a surprisingly sweet finish.
