Japanese Kukicha is a blend of tea leaves and tea leaf stems. The lightness of the stems translates into sweet notes of white sesame seed or chestnut in the cup. Stems also make this tea a lower caffeine alternative compared to most green teas. Tender quality to the texture, like soft white rice, smooth and silky. Kukicha is well balanced and very low in astringency.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 2-3 minutes.

fresh from origin

Land is a scarce resource in Japan, making all agriculture a pricey endeavor. So it became essential for the Japanese farmer to extract as much value from each tea bush as possible. Necessity being the mother of invention, the Japanese have been ingenious at devising tea varieties that are unheard of in countries more land-endowed. One such tea is Kukicha, which is made from stems and leaves from Sencha and Gyokuro production.
