Kukicha Twig Tea

Kukicha Twig Tea (Kuki Cha) is made the Gyokuro Tea plant after the leaves have been harvested.  It is the stems, stalks, and twigs left after the leaves have been processed into loose leaf tea, and ground into Matcha, which is why it is called Kukicha, or Twig Tea.  Light green in color, with a mildly nutty, and slightly creamy sweet flavor, Kukicha’s vegetal taste is refreshingly different if you like unflavored green teas.

We buy this tea directly from the family in Japan which has grown, processed and sold teas around the world for almost 100 years.

It’s unique flavor and aroma among teas is due to its being composed of parts of the tea plant that are excluded from most other teas. Kuki Cha one of the preferred teas of the macrobiotic diet and is unique in that it is naturally very low in caffeine without any industrial decaffeination. Give it a try. You’ll be surprised how light and smooth it is to drink.

We sell other Green Teas we import from the same family in Japan. So, if you enjoy Green Teas and would like to try our other Japanese teas, please try our Fukamushi Sen Cha, Matcha Genmai Cha, Ban Cha, Houji Cha, and our Premium Ceremonial Matcha Tea. Their quality is unsurpassed for Japanese Teas.
