I really like kukicha. I’m bemused at the fact something that looks like what you rake up from under your elm tree can yield something so sweet and nutty. This particular blend hasn’t gotten much love in existing reviews, but I’ll defend it. Tasty, with maybe even a little touch of Juicy Fruit Gum—oolong in the aftertaste.

I can’t recall ever having kukicha! Maybe I have?

I’ll try to remember to send a bit next time there’s an envelope heading your way.

Ooooh, thank you! And no worry, no hurry! I have little experience with Japanese greens and this sounds interesting!
