The Nagatas carefully select 40 medium 3-yr 40 thick 10-yr and 20 thin twigs and leaves aged 1 year before gently roasting each variety separately to bring out its rich flavor. Because caffeine is concentrated in the leaves twig tea is low in caffeine and can be drunk even at night.

Good as ordered.
I finally opened the boxed packaged containing this tea. It was inclusive in having other items added as free samples. I have yet to open and try the tea, but I have had twig tea in recent past. So I am hopping that it is as remembered, nice roasted cup of twig.
