    Say hello to a tea blend with a brand new ingredient never before seen in our blends…Kukicha, or ‘Twig Tea’! Kukicha is the stems & stalks of Sencha tea, which have a very similar flavour profile to traditional Japanese Sencha tea but with a slightly nutty & buttery note.

    Green tea drinkers who enjoy a purer green tea taste will love this take on a traditional Japanese Sencha. Using high-quality, authentic Sencha from Japan, this fresh & simple blend’s delicious & unique flavour speaks for itself. Sencha is traditionally harvested as the first buds of springtime appear, and with its fresh, naturally sweet & grassy taste, this is the perfect blend to welcome the spring season. We hope you love it as much as we do!

    Tea Mixologist Top Tip

    Kukicha can be resteeped many times and can also be 'flash brewed'; which means it can be brewed for just 30-45 seconds each time - if you prefer.

    A great new tea blend

    Love this tea; it's fresh, bright and refreshing. Better still it can be rebrewed two or three times with subtle flavour changes with each brew. Please make this permanent

    Perfect!

    When in Japan I got a real taste for those cold green teas that you could buy in convenience stores or the vending machine. I haven't found a green tea here in the UK that seemed to allow me to recreate a similar taste - until today! While it's not identical, it's a substitute that I'm delighted with. I bought a 50g pouch to try with B&B's Cold Brew Bottle. It's a lovely delicate flavour and doesn't get bitter in the cold brewing process - such a lovely and 'clean' (for lack of a better descriptor!).

    I got it on May 4th and as of today (May 11th) I'm now in need of more because of how much I've been brewing. A lovely sencha for a cold brew and brings me back to my summers in Japan!
