This organic green tea quality is largely composed by leaf stalks, the so-called "Kuki", 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. The mild coffee note reminds a little of dark chocolate. Despite its characteristic appearance, its taste is discreet and thus makes it an enjoyable experience. It is suitable both during the day and in the evening.
