Weight

DESCRIPTION

Our Kukicha is made largely from stems and leaves of organically grown Gyokuro and Sencha. It has a mellow flavor (similar but muted form of the Gyokuro or Sencha notes) with a refreshing aftertaste. Since Kukicha has a high content of stems it has less caffeine than a regular green tea. This is a very good introductory tea to Japanese green tea category.

DRY LEAF: A mottled appearance of light green stems and the dark green of the leaves. Bears a fresh sweet green smell.

INFUSED LEAF: Has a vegetal, grassy nose with savory undertones.

CUP: A pale green liquor that has notes of sweet grass and boiled veggies. Light body with a just a hint of savoriness. Refreshing.  

STEEPING TIPS:

   1 tbsp (3 grams) to a 8 oz cup

   176°F 

   1 min, re-steep: 1.5 mins

 

ORIGIN:

Aichi Prefecture

Tea drinking has been an

Tea drinking has been an experience for many for 1000s of years. Every cup I brew for myself or friends is an experience, a meditation of sorts. Just enjoying a cup of the wide assortment of blends you share is beyond a cup of joy for me! I appreciate you and thank you for your friendly bag of Darjeeling first flush 2018 included. I get to ship your teas to Vegas while I live here; I am lucky and gratefully I stumbled upon your shop while in Rochester. Thank you thank you! Thank you for sharing amazing teas for all of us!
