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 makes a sweeter tea than the other types of green tea.  Kukicha can be roasted at home to make ‘home made Hojicha’.  The roasting aroma is so relaxing and almost addictive.  Making a cup of tea using freshly roasted Kukicha stems makes a wonderful quality “Mee” time.
