Being a frugal people, the Japanese let nothing go to waste while making green tea. The tea stalks which might be discarded in other tea regions have been harnessed to make a pleasant tea. Since it is made from the stems and twigs of the tea plant there is less caffeine, amino acids, and antioxidants to give flavor and add benefits to the brew.
I love green tea and drink it everyday but some days it can be very hard on my stomach. Luckily this tea has an answer. This is one of the most gentle green teas I have ever tasted, great for the days when you need something light for your stomach. Yet another favorite of mine. (Posted on 3/21/14)
I'm not a huge fan of green teas, but I really enjoy this one. It's fairly forgiving to make - you don't have to watch every second of the brewing. It's not bitter like some greens. It has a delicate spinach-ey flavor and marine-like aroma. I'm not getting much "thickness" like some greens, but it's still a lovely experience. (Posted on 4/18/13)
The flavor is very similar to Harney's Japanese Sencha, so close it's difficult to tell them apart. I love them both but like Kukicha slightly more, and with the lower caffeine I can drink it close to bedtime. (Posted on 12/29/12)
