Kukicha Organic Twig Tea - Twigs, Leaves of Gyokuro and Sencha Teas

3 reviews


Our Kukicha is made largely from stems and leaves of organically grown Gyokuro and Sencha teas. 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.  


   1 tbsp (3 grams) to a 8 oz cup


   1 min, re-steep: 1.5 mins

Mild flavor and lower caffeine make this a great evening green tea. As always, Happy Earth is rocking the quality!

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!
