Twig Tea - 2 oz TIN

100% Organic Ingredients: Roasted Tea Twigs

Grown here!! Roasted Premium certified organic Kukicha  (toasted twig, stem and mature leaves). Very special manufacture...full of history.

Blender's Notes: Toasty aroma. Roasty-toasty- rich and deeply delicious, satisfying taste. Soothing, satisfying tea of wok- roasted then aged tea twigs and mature leaves. Typically aged 2 to 3 years after roasting. Kukicha-style teas like our Twig Tea was actively promoted by George Ohsawa in the 60's as the "everyday tea", to be consumed with every meal. Popular as a children's beverage when prepared 50% twig tea and 50% apple juice. Naturally lightly caffeinated- soothing and refreshing, yet not stimulating.

EDUCATIONAL INFORMATION:

Roasted Tea Twigs - Because twig tea is comprised of the stems and young twigs, it is rich in both vitamins and minerals that feed the growth parts of the plant. The minerals found in kukicha include copper, selenium, manganese, calcium, zinc and fluoride. Kukicha contains vitamins A and C and the B-complex vitamins, which are all potent antioxidants. Twig tea contains more calcium than cow's milk, according to Julie Ong, author of "The Everything Guide to Macrobiotics."
