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 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, Well Tea supplies lots of roasted varieties of Japanese green tea, offering more woody tones of honey and grain.
Kukicha offers an excellent option for upgrading your tea drinking tastes and exploring what the world of Japanese tea has to offer.
