Kukicha is one of Japanese green teas. It is dramatically distinguished from other green teas, almost all other teas - by the use of the stems of the plant, as well as the shoots. This is also why it's often called 'Kukicha twig tea' - it literally has twigs in it. In reality it means that the tea has a lighter, fresher flavour even than the one normally associated with more common green teas.
It provides a light, gentle drink that will surprise the uninitiated greatly. The tea comes primarily from the same plants that Sencha and Matcha teas come from - simply using the parts of the tea plants not used in the production of the others.
Recommended for older people, adults and children. The youngest may be mixed with fruit juice. Has a calming effect.
