Episode 180: Kukicha

kukicha

Zhi Tea’s Kukicha is made up of the stems, twigs, and branches that are left over from green tea processing. It might sound odd to drink, but hey, we drink cinnamon in tea and that’s basically tree bark!

Kukicha is nutty, slightly sweet, and falls somewhere between sencha and bancha (to me) on the green tea flavor spectrum. This kukicha is slightly roasted to bring more of that earthy flavor to the surface. Kukicha is also naturally low in caffeine, is great hot or iced, and kids can drink it too! It’s all-purpose!
