type: green

origin: japan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

A warm, rounded and playful green tea from Japan. Kukicha is a blend of tea leaves and tea leaf stems. The lightness of the stems translates into the cup as a sweet, white sesame seed or chestnut note. Tender quality to the texture, like soft white rice. Very balanced and, for a Japanese tea, very low in astringency. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      This is an awesome Japanese green tea, nice and savory, brothy, with an almost celery-like aftertaste.

      A light green tea with delightful nutty tones to the taste. Not astringent at all. A new favorite blend!

      I tried this for adagio’s communiTEA. I think it tastes like grass. I’m not a fan.

      This tea has a very leafy/grass quality without being overly bitter. I followed the brewing instructions and drank it hot.

      This is one of my very favorite Japanese teas. Not too strong, just right.
