Kukicha Green Tea

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Kukicha tea is fondly nicknamed ‘twig tea’ for its distinctive appearance. Pronounced Ku-key-cha, this tea is made up of tea leaves mixed with young tea plant stems. So when buying a packet of Kukicha you will discover that it contains both medium-green and yellow pieces of tea plant. Kukicha green tea is a delightful Japanese tea for sharing a pot with friends or a relaxing cup on your own.

Kukicha is regarded as one of the freshest tasting Japanese green teas, with a slightly bitter taste. When added to a teapot or cup with near boiling water, Kukicha then takes on a pale green-yellow colour and sweet scented fragrance. Another key characteristic of Kukicha green tea is that it is not roasted after it is harvested, but merely steamed. If you prefer roasted tea, WellTea supplies lots of roasted varieties of Japanese green tea, offering more woody tones of honey and grain.

Like our other green teas, Kukicha is packed with anti-oxidants offering a wealth of health benefits, including reducing cholesterol, the  lowering of stress and anxiety and assisting weight loss by burning fat. With so many health benefits, partnered with its refreshing flavour, Kukicha offers an excellent option for upgrading your tea drinking tastes and exploring what the world of Japanese tea has to offer.

    I like this green tea. It has a nice flavour. It looks very twiggy and has some loose powdery bits too. They make the tea a little cloudy at times but it still tastes great.

    I love my tea, and trying lots of different teas. I have never tried this one before! When I opened the bag I could see cardamom seeds mixed with the tea. I actually like the smell of this authentic kukicha tea, and it does not seem too strong. I absolutely enjoy every cup of this tea. 🙂

Kabusecha Sencha Green Tea

The harvesting process for Kabusecha Green tea is rather unique. Like all teas, the leaves are left to grow in natural sunlight. Then 2-3 weeks before they’re harvested the tea plants are covered with huge black sheets to block around half of the sunlight, hence the name Kabusecha which literally means ‘covered tea’. The reason for this is to bring out the tea’s highly sweet taste and remove any hint of bitterness. This has led to comparisons with Japanese Gyokuro tea, both in terms of taste and the emerald green colour of the leaves.

WellTea Sencha Miyazaki Green Tea Quick View

Miyazaki Sencha Green Tea

Miyazaki Sencha tea comes from Japan’s fourth largest tea-producing region. The reasonably priced Miyazaki Sencha is similar to a medium steamed Sencha tea but without the price tag. This makes it an excellent choice if you want to indulge in drinking Japanese tea throughout the tea and premium Japanese teas are outside your price range. The leaves of Miyazaki Sencha can look as though they weren’t harvested until autumn, due to their rustic look. However, when added to a cup with warm water, their mellow yet slightly fruity aroma is released. You can then sit back, close your eyes and bask in the sweet scents and tastes, picturing yourself enjoying a cup of fresh tea at the beautiful plantation where Miyazaki Sencha is cultivated.

WellTea Green Mate & Coconut Sencha Green Tea Quick View

Green Mate & Coconut Sencha Green Tea

This tea provides a beautiful tea decorated with petals combined with shreds of coconut and the green mate herb from South America. Green mate herb is traditionally drunk on its own in a mug with hot water to create a spicy drink. Some drinkers like to add sugar or honey, but we’ve created a concoction of our own. What we’ve done is create a tea which combines this herb with Green Sencha from Japan, coconut shreds, blossoms from roses and cornflower and some mild flavouring to create a tea that’s filled with colour and offers a distinctly spicy taste mixed with the soft undertones of mild coconut.

Bancha Green Tea

Japanese Bancha tea is harvested from the same tree as the popular Sencha family of teas. However, the leaves for Bancha tea are harvested later, towards the start of autumn and almost up until winter when the leaves are larger. This is known as the ‘second flush’ of harvesting. Due to the fact that they are picked later in the year, Bancha tea is ranked at a lower grade than traditional Sencha tea. The advantage of this is that it makes Bancha tea much more affordable.
