Expiration Date: Aug 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Eden Organic Kukicha Twig Tea is made from three Autumn and Winter clippings of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. The first occurs when the plant is a minimum of three years old. Twice per year thereafter thin twigs and stems are clipped, and every ten years thick twigs are clipped. The twigs are separately steamed, sun dried for one week, aged for two to three years, then roasted in gas fired cast iron rotating ovens to develop its distinctive smoky flavor and aroma. Kukicha is soothing and calming. It's very low caffeine level, 90% less than coffee, make it an ideal tea for both children and adults. Contains no artificial coloring, additives, or chemicals.
Place 2 Tablespoons twigs in 5 cups water, bring to a boil, and simmer 3 to 5 minutes. Mixed with half Eden Organic Apple Juice makes a perfect beverage for children. The twigs can be reused to make another milder pot of tea.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I really like that tea and the fact that it's in the form of twigs because it's harder to make a really bitter cup of tea than it is with regular green tea. Seems like it doesn't release as much tannins. I don't recommend brewing as long as the instructions say though.
Tea is very good, but the taste is not for everybody.
