Kukicha, or stem tea, is made from different varieties of tea stems. Aiya’s Kukicha is a blend of stems from Gyokuro and Sencha. Most of the Kukicha available in the market is made from stems of Sencha; however, Aiya’s Kukicha contains over 50% of Gyokuro stems for a more natural sweetness and rich aroma.
Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 176°F / 80°C. Steep 3 grams (1 tsp) of Kukicha for 1 minute in 1 cup (8 oz / 240 ml) of hot water.
