Tea Studio | Nilgiri Kukicha roasted
This Kukicha style tea was created following the old Japanese tradition where stems and stalks from late bush harvests are roasted in preparation for winter. Its taste is exceptionally sweet, with notes of hazelnuts, brown sugar and roasted pecans. Kukicha tea also has the advantage of being naturally low in caffeine.
Dynamic and passionate, the Camellia Sinensis team is proud to take on a new role in the industry (producer), with the Tea Studio.
