The Poetry of Tea...

During the fall in the Uji district, traditional center of the Japanese tea industry, tea farmers turn to the harvest of tea twigs for Kukicha, the "peasant's drink", so-called because farmers drank it after selling the leaves to sophisticated urbanites as a cash crop. The farmers carefully select 40% medium twigs ages 3yrs., 40% thick twigs aged 10 yrs., and 20% thin twigs and leaves aged 1 yr., before gently roasting each variety separately to bring out its rich flavor. Because caffeine is concentrated in the leaves, twig tea is very mild and can be drunk even at night. Try our Haiku Organic Japanese Kukicha Twig Tea and you will understand why true connoisseurs of Japanese twig tea will drink nothing else.

Suggested Use

To prepare hot, add 1 teabag per cup or 4 teabags per 4 cups (a teapot) to cold water. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes. Remove the teabags and serve.

Other Ingredients

Organic Japanese kukicha tea twigs, stems, and leaves.

Our teabags are made from unbleached natural fibers with individual cellophane wraps to preserve freshness.
