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.

I am a Japanese green tea connoisseur, and am impressed with this company and its products. I have tried two types of green tea so far, and they are the real thing. Also: the costs are very reasonable, in my experience, and the shipping is quick & efficient. Communication is intelligent, efficient, and even has a lovely, lightly personal touch. Thank you and I salute you, Ocha & Co.
Had been searching unsuccessfully for true, quality Japanese Kukicha! Finally found it! My Japanese mother who has discriminating tastebuds is very happy.
As I make my way down the list of teas that Ocha and Co. has to offer, here is yet another tea which I cannot get enough of. Great quality and superb service. I highly recommend this tea!
I’m very grateful to be paying half of what this fine green tea costs at the local tea shop (where I no longer can afford to buy). The tea is fresh and delicious. I’ll be ordering again, from Ocha & Co.!
All of my tea purchases (I purchase all organic) have been absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommended!!!!
