caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

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 3-yr, 40% thick 10-yr, and 20% thin twigs and leaves aged 1 year, before gently roasting each variety separately to bring out its rich flavor. Because caffeine is concentrated in the leaves, twig tea is low in caffeine and can be drunk even at night. HAIKU® Twig Tea teabags are always two full grams of 100% Japanese Organic Kukicha Tea, the finest quality in the world. Try it and you will understand why true connoisseurs of Japanese twig tea will drink nothing else.
