Kukicha, also known as twig tea or 3 year tea, is aged after harvest and roasted. Kukicha tea is also known as three years tea because the stems and branches that are used to do it have been in the tea plant for at least three years, so they have lost virtually all of the caffeine (only kukicha tea is between 0.5 and 1% caffeine) but, however, have absorbed all the multiple properties and vitamins of nature around them.
Kukicha tea can be taken hot or cold and is especially recommendable for breakfast, as it brings a lot of energy and vitality in a healthy and natural way. It can also be taken as a digestive after meals.
The main advantage tea kukicha has is that, having virtually no caffeine, it can be taken any time of day, even after dinner, without running the risk of lose sleep.
