Kukicha, or twig tea, is made of the twigs/stalks of sencha or gyokuro and tea leaves. The twigs give the tea a unique grassy and fresh sweetness. You can almost smell some grassy breeze from a meadow. This tea is suitable to drink in summer and in ice and has relatively lower caffeine.

 

Higher grade of kukicha is made of the twigs of gyokuro and is called Karigane. On top of the sweetness of kukicha, it has a bit of salty and umami flavour from the gyokuro.

莖茶混合了煎茶或玉露的莖與茶葉製成,有著茶莖的新鮮青草氣息和甘甜,喝著莖茶猶如感受原野吹來帶有草香的風。這款茶清爽脷落,適合炎夏或加冰飲用,另外咖啡因含量亦相對低。

 

高級的莖茶又叫「雁音」,由玉露的枝葉製成。比起普通莖茶,雁音更帶有一種來自玉露的咸鮮味道。
