Wikipedia definition
2. KukichaKukicha (茎茶), or twig tea, also known as bōcha (棒茶), is a Japanese blend made of stems, stalks, and twigs. It is available as a green tea or in more oxidized processing. Kukicha has a unique flavor and aroma among teas, due to its being composed of parts of the tea plant that are excluded from most other teas. Regular Kukicha material comes from production of Sencha or Matcha. When coming from Gyokuro's production, it takes the name of Karigane (雁ヶ音 / かりがね) or Shiraore (白折 / しらおれ).
