Frontier Natural Products, Organic Kukicha Twig Tea, 16 oz (453 g)9 Reviews
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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Consisting primarily of leaf stems and fine tea twigs, this low-caffeine tea produces a mild, woody-malty brew. Unlike leaf teas, kukicha is best prepared by simmering for 10 minutes.
To enjoy, pour 6 oz simmering water (185F preferred) over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 3-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Kukicha Twig Tea (Camellia sinensis)
Contains less than 1% of caffeine.
iHerb Customer Reviews
I love it. Very little caffeine and it tastes a lot like coffee.It is naturally sort of sweet so it only need a tiny bit of sugar.
I needed to find and purchase this tea for my employer. I checked out my two local health food stores and found an inferior brand (tea was in tea bags-not suitable for this type of tea) which was over priced. Next I went to two diffrent asian food markets, but the majority of their teas were Chinese. I also tried tea shops but apparently this is not a common enough tea to carry. I was hesitant to order Kukicha tea online without getting to examine it, but thought this site looked most legit and the price was awesome. The tea arrived faster than I expected, and my employer and I were very pleased with the quality. It's great to have such a good resource for authentic Kukicha.
