According to the Harney and Sons website:
"Kukicha, a Japanese green tea is a mixture of green stems and yellow twigs.
The liquor is very light green, as you can see in these photos.
This tea has a low level of caffeine and a mellow flavor.
Kukicha has a light vegetel flavor from the stems and woody notes from the twigs.
Brew Kukicha for 1 to 2 minutes at 160 degrees F. "
Note from Linda:
I purchased this tea for a tasting with Mary, Patty and Lynn.
All found it to be a light, delicate tasting tea,
and appreciated the low caffeine levels.
Kukicha is reported to be a favorite beverage of
Mary's favorite entertainer and Kentucky native,
Dwight Yoakam, therefore, my reason for choosing this tea.
Mary was very pleased!
