Description

Kukicha is made from the stems of young tea leaves separated during the sencha refining process and is also called "twig tea". Since Kukicha is made up of primarily stems, it has a higher concentration of L-theanine and lower amount of caffeine compared to leaf-only green teas. This gives it a natural sweetness and makes it a relaxing tea that can be enjoyed any time of day without inducing sleepiness. Sugimoto's relaxing Kukicha has a mildly sweet, umami flavor, and an intoxicating floral fragrance that makes this a favorite tea to enjoy in the afternoon or evening.
