Green Kukicha

Regular price $5.00

Style: Green

Origin: Japan

Description: This Green Kukicha is made from a combination of Bancha (or second-flush) tea leaf stems, twig and stalks. Unlike Roasted Kukicha, this tea is steamed like a traditional green tea to halt the oxidation process and maintain its rich and varied green hues. While the tea was initially combined with twigs and stems for the sake of frugality during difficult times, this composition gives it a unique flavour and aroma that has become more popular and well-loved in Japan and internationally.

Tasting Notes: The aroma of this tea is a unique combination of sweet, green summer grasses and freshly sliced fruit reminiscent of apricot and pear. This delicate flavour translates to the cup, which is gentle but full-mouthed. The notes of fruit appear more strongly in the exquisite, lengthy linger on the palate.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 90ºC water. steep 3 minutes.

Certified Organic

Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
