Ingredient: Organic Japanese Kukicha Loose Leaf
Kukicha (koo-key-cha) is also known as “twig tea” as kuki means “stem” in Japanese. Kukicha uses mostly stems rather than tea leaves. Since stems are low in bitter substances, Kukicha tastes sweeter and is lower in caffeine than the other types of green tea. Kukicha can be roasted at your store or cafe to make ‘home made Hojicha’. The freshly roasting aroma is relaxing and addictive.
Preparation: Steep 1 heaping tsp in 8 oz hot water (150° F) for 40 seconds to 1 minute. For second cup from the same leaf, use hot water (about 180° F) and steep for 5 minutes.
