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

7 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

Love this tea!

I bought 1oz of this tea so I could try it and I loved it! Will definitely need a larger amount next time. This tea reminds me a lot of sencha, but more mellow. So if you enjoy sencha, you will like this tea.

Haven't typically liked green teas, but I bought this hoping to find one that I finally liked and I did. Very pleasant to drink.
