Tea Studio | Nilgiri Kukicha roasted
Celebrating their 20th year Camellia Sinensis have created the Tea Studio with an international group of partners, an experimental tea factory in Nilgiri India focused on the artisanal creation of new teas.
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.
