Low quality kukicha (2013 – or maybe 2014- harvest – I uploaded my review quite late)
Kukicha is a tea made of the stems, twigs and stalks of green Sencha tea leaves. As these parts are excluded from most other teas it has a very unique flavor. It has a mild, slightly nutty flavor with a nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. Kukicha usually can be used for three or four infusions.
Ejima Tea Company is a Japanese tea shop established 1661 in the castle city of Odawara and is now run by the 17th generation of the Ejima family. Ejima works with selected tea farmers from close by Shizuoka, one of the main production areas of Japanese tea. Most of these relations with tea farmers go back for many generations. The Ejima line-up covers a broad range of Japanese teas.
