Kukicha Green Tea

Quick Overview

Florescent green color is the first unique quality of Kukicha. The taste is the second! Fresh, bright character with grassy, yellow notes and remarkable aroma makes this tea unforgettable. Sometimes referred to as 'twig tea or stalk tea' (not to be confused with a brown 'twig tea' that is nothing like real Kukicha) this yummy brew is delicious hot or iced and one of Beth's personal favorites. Kukicha does come from the stalk fractions produced from picking Gyokuro and Sencha Japanese green teas. The leaves go on to make up those teas while the stalk fractions are processed into Kukicha. The long thin shape and bright color is unmistakable.
