Japan’s Unique Tea
Tea is normally made of tea leaves and buds, however Kukicha is uniquely made of stems and stalks left over from the production of Sencha or Gyokuro. Among the many tea producing countries in the world, this type of tea is only found in Japan. It has a unique aroma, natural sweetness, and contains a high level of L-Theanine (amino acid).
