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
This was my first order with Ocha, and overall I'm really impressed. My order arrived in about 1.5 weeks (seems good since its apparently coming from Japan) and the quality of the tea is superb. I'm actually about to order a second bag of kukicha and try a new type as well.
Because of the problems over Christmas, my tea order did not arrive but I was very impressed by the immediate response of Ocha. I now have a very special tea which came immediately after my email enquiry.
I can recommend Ocha as a very reliable company delivering great value. Thanks Gary for providing us with great Japanese tea. You are making the world sweeter one cup at a time :-)
The package has arrived in a perfect condition and I am very happy with my purchase. I bought 'Kiku-cha' and 'Genmai-cha with matcha' this time (my first time) . I will add 'Hoji-cha' next time as well. Thank you.
As always, my favorite teas come from ocha & co
