More information

After the leaves of sencha tea are steamed and dried, they are separated from their stalks. Tea made of these stalks, the isolated by-products, is called kukicha. It tends to taste sweeter, since it is made from the parts of the plant that, intentionally shaded or not, were greeted with less sunlight.

We tend to offer this green tea at our daily canteen as our iced tea of the day. We cold brew the leaves overnight and stir a serving with lemon juice and honey syrup.

Storage: Keep the loose tea leaves in a cool, dry place. It is best to store loose teas in airtight containers to keep them fresh.
