Flavor Profile: Clean, fresh grassy green with a buttery body and lingering sweetness.
Tea Story: One of our regulars, Jonathan has been drinking this tea 5 days a week for the past two years. And for good reason. It is smoooth and velvety, with a rounded mellow grassy body. It is the ideal everyday Japanese green. Easy to brew, sip this alone or with a meal, any time of day. Harvested in early spring, and then steamed, our unusual green kukicha is made from just the tealeaves and tender stems of the tea plant.
Samovarian Poetry: Intriguing, bottomless taste. An emerald glow with a lingering satiny body. Japanese steamed green tea made from early spring tealeaves & soft stems.
Food Pairing: Pair this deliciously light Kukicha with simple dishes, like brown rice with pickled vegetables and salted fish. Any light, fresh fair, like salads or a light stir-fry would be ideal.
