stem teas are made from the stems and leaves of the tea plant. They are lower in caffeine than their leafy counterparts, and can even have an alkalizing effect on the body. They have a very pleasant note of summer grass, combined with a nice tingling on the palate from the high mineral content. In Japan, it is common to enjoy these teas after a meal, not only because they are low in caffeine, but also because they can help with digestion.
