Kukicha, meaning twig tea in English, is a mixture of the twigs and leaves from the tea bush Camellia Sinensis.
It has a unique taste because of its use of twigs and stems which are rarely used in the manufacture of other teas, where only leaves are used.
Kukicha has a mild nutty flavour and light sweetness. What characterises this tea most is a long and soft aftertaste.
This tea is from our producer Hoshino Seicha in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan.
Ingredients: green tea.
