This roasted Kukicha (or Kaga boucha). This makes for an exciting cup as it has a different flavor profile than most teas, because the twigs of the tea plant are used instead of the leaves. It has a pleasant roasted smell and flavor with very little astringency and bitterness in the steeped cup. This tea makes for a full-bodies, soothing, slightly sweet tea with a richly woody flavor. Mild and soothing, Roasted Kukicha twig tea is quite low in caffeine and can be enjoyed at any hour.
