Organic Kukicha Green Tea is a Japanese green tea made with the more delicate stems of the leaf along with some leaf which sticks to the stem when sorting. It's the perfect green tea for moments when you really want the herbal taste of fresh Japanese green tea but you don't want your body to get over-stimulated. Great for evening drinking as it's low on teine.  

The first buds of spring will be harvested in the first flush of the tea garden of the Hayashi family in Mie prefecture at the beginning of May. After steaming the leaves for a somewhat longer time (chu-mushi) and further processing, the leaves are separated into finer leaves (tokujou sencha) and leaf stalks (karigane)
