A green tea made from leaves and stalks. This type of tea is often a by-product of Hojicha, but our variety is made from the same bushes and leaves used for Gyokuro, giving its sly flavor the finesse and freshness of Gyokuro. Light green leafstalks yield a full grassy aroma. It gives a rich brew even after several infusions and causes a slight lift.
Kukicha boasts an earthy or grounded flavor and is a superb match for a light meal.
