KUKICHA, TEA LEAF STEMS
JAPANESE LANGUAGE PACKAGING

Price: $12.00
The stems for our Kukicha come from premium quality tea leaves picked in the early spring, which are then deep steamed. This results in a very light, refreshing Japanese green tea that tastes slightly sweet and vegetal. Kukicha hardly ever tastes bitter even when brewed more than once. Its caffeine content is lower than most other green teas.

  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces)
  • Makes approximately 45 to 50 servings of tea

The dry stem – loose – prior to infusion smells incredible! It’s powerful and very green in every way! Vegetal yet springy. VERY Fresh smelling!

After infusion it smell like veggies as well but the roasted aroma decreases a bit.

The flavor is full and smooth. As far from ever being bitter than you could ever get. This is very clean and pretty brothy.

This is in a different category than most Greens I have tasted…this is high quality and a pure delight!

I’m going on through all the teas I have, trying to update my cupboard and see which ones I have enough of to send out to swap. I’m realizing I forget to log a lot… Oh well. This one brews up yellow and is warm and toasty in taste. I like it because its not veggie like green teas, not astringent at all, and it tastes like the tea we get at the restaurant. We took my dad out for Father’s Day and shared a pot of tea that tasted just like this, it is a good one to pair with dinner.
