Made from early spring harvested leaves and tender stems, Kukicha is a fragrant and flavorful tea with a fresh, savory taste and sweet, mellow finish. Known as "twig tea", our Kukicha Supreme uses only the higher-grade stems from the manufacture of sencha.

Lower in caffeine than many green teas, Kukicha is highly recommended with meals and as a light and refreshing evening tea.

Unique Review by Nikki
I love Kukicha! I had never tried it prior to going to The Fragrant Leaf but loved the way it smelled, so I bought a couple ounces and was informed it is actually a stem of the green tea plant. It's actually really delicious and very earthy. :) (Posted on 12/31/14)
