Very vegetal fragrance, but light and fresh taste. Calm, pleasant.
Organic Kukicha Green Tea
Our organic Kukicha (pronounced KU-key-cha) is a distinctive-looking Japanese green tea that consists of tea leaves mixed with the young stems of the tea plant. For this reason, it is also known as “twig tea.” The resulting mixture consists of fairly uniform yellow to medium-green fragments, which yield a pale yellow-green infusion with a sweet aroma. It has an extraordinarily fresh taste with moderate bitterness, and is not as vegetative as our other Japanese green teas.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.
