Ingredients: Organically grown roasted green tea twigs, stems and leaves
Product weight: 20 bags (36g)
Clearspring Organic Kukicha is made from the carefully selected twigs and stems of Japanese tea bushes. They are steamed, rolled and dried before slowly aged to develop their mild and soothing ﬂavour. Roasting the tea reduces its caffeine content and gives it a delicately nutty aroma, which makes our Kukicha perfect for any time of the day and suitable for the whole family.
Our new Teabags range is non-GM and in 100% sustainable packaging. The teabags are stitched together using a unique folding process and are staple free. The strings are made of 100% organic cotton and the outer carton is recyclable and printed using vegetable-based ink.

In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
Excellent, as always!
Invigorating, Refreshing not to mention perfect aid in my desire to give up sugar.
Kukicha or Hojicha? Which to choose?
I recommend buying both.
I have known Kukicha for many years and , fairly recently , discovered Hojicha.
Both are refreshing and cooling even in hot weather but if you want something with a little more strength,this is the one.
I drink both at different times of the day and Kukicha is wonderful instead of morning coffee.
My go-to tea when I've given out everything I have and I need an ahh moment. Really, really good.
