Kukicha is quite different from other green teas as it is made from the stem and stalks of the tea plant and not the leaves. It has a nice nutty flavour with hints of citrus and sweet umami and exquisite aroma. Lower caffeine content. Popular in the macrobiotic diet.

Easily the best Kukicha out there - a far cry from the dry, brown twigs sold elsewhere. Sweet, fresh, green and nourishing. Delicious, but still feels like it's doing you good. Have been drinking it for years now, and just love it
I made the mistake of ordering this tea from another company US based when the pandemic hit. I awas absolutely miserable with the quality of what they called kukicha.
I will never deviate again. The products are outstanding and their customer service is exceptional. Lifelong customer!
My wife and I love kukicha tea and have tried just about all the brands we can get our hands on. The Ocha kukicha is so extra tasty and smooth and handles multiple infusions with ease.
I have been buying the Kukicha Green tea for a couple of years now. It's the best green tea I've had - it has a light, grassy flavor, not bitter. Bonus that it is certified organic and reasonably priced. Lately I've been dropping in a knob of smashed, fresh ginger as it steeps - delicious!
