In Autumn, the peasant tea farmer, unable to afford the tea he had sold, would return to his teabushes. Clipping the smallest twigs, he roasted and aged them. The resulting delicate tea was called "kuki-cha" ('kuki = twig 'cha' = tea ). Today, here in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania, we blend this humble kukicha with broken leaves of black tea, to create this 'scavenger's tea.'
