Kukicha



£7.80£15.00

Kukicha is sometimes considered a by-product of tea production, as it is created from the split stems of the picked leaves. But rather than being a second quality tea it in fact has a delicious, refreshing taste all its own. With the added plus it usually has even less caffeine than other green teas.
