This exceptional kukicha is made from the stems of Obubu’s Autumn harvest Tencha, who’s leaves are made into their matcha. The bushes are shaded from the sun for three weeks before harvesting, giving them high amino acid content and adding to the rich, satisfying umami notes found in the tea liquor. After steaming and separating from the leaves, the stems are roasted, enhancing the flavours, creating a rich and mellow tea with a soft, lingering sweetness.
