Kukicha is quite different from other green teas as it is made from the stem and stalks of the tea plant and not the leaves. It has a nice nutty flavour with hints of citrus and sweet umami and exquisite aroma. Lower caffeine content. Popular in the macrobiotic diet.
CAN BE BREWED COLD
Beautiful color, nutty flavor, pleasant taste
This tea surprised me with its complex, sweet taste. I will definitely be ordering more!
ho sempre apprezzato il kukicha, ma col tempo ho finito per preferire altri tè (sencha, shincha). in questo kukicha ho però trovato un equilibrio così perfetto fra la componente dolce dei rametti e quella fresca delle foglie verdi. questo splendido tè mi ha restituito dopo diversi anni il piacere del kukicha, oggi ho un motivo di gratitudine in più verso Ocha & Co.!
Kukicha is my favourite tea, and this is a great variety - best of all, unlike some other brands, it is consistently aromatic and flavourful from bag to bag. I guess this is down to the freshness from being sent directly from Japan.
I love every type of tea Ocha makes. I was hesitant about kukicha because I thought it wouldn’t be as flavorful as the fukashima or other straight green tea leaf teas but I was pleasantly surprised.
