kukicha

kukicha

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° for 2 minutes.

One such tea is Kukicha, which is made from stems and leaves from Sencha and Gyokuro production.

Our Masters Pouchong starts with a deep, inviting sugary-floral nose. The bright, pale golden-green liquor has a soft, melting butter texture, uplifting floral notes and mild, succulent flavo... read more...
