A warm, rounded and playful green tea from Japan, known as "twig tea". Our Organic Kukicha Karigane is a blend of high grade Gyokuro tea leaves and tea leaf stems picked in the early spring in Shiyuoka, which are then deep steamed. This results in a very light, refreshing Japanese green tea that tastes slightly sweet and vegetal. Very balanced, Kukicha hardly ever tastes bitter even when brewed more than once and its caffeine content is lower than most other green teas. The lightness of the stems translates into the cup as a sweet, white sesame seed or chestnut note.
