About Kukicha Variety

Kukicha is made with the stems of leaves which are accumulated during the sorting process while making Sencha (stems account for only 8% of unsorted tea). The aroma of this tea is green and fresh. The taste is sweeter and lighter than Sencha and the fresh green color is also striking.
