Kukicha or “twig tea” is a unique Japanese tea that’s made from the leaves, twigs, and stems of the camellia sinensis tea tree. While it’s a lesser-known tea in the western world, it’s loaded with nutrients to fuel you for a healthy, productive day.

The history of Pu-erh tea dates back to the Yunnan Province in southwest China, where it was first brewed during the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 220 AD).

It can only be cultivated and fermented in China, but Pu-erh can be found in tea shops all over the world.
