Kukicha is made from the stems of young tea leaves separated during the sencha refining process and is also called "twig tea". Since Kukicha is made up of primarily stems, it has a higher concentration of L-theanine and lower amount of caffeine compared to leaf-only green teas. This gives it a natural sweetness and makes it a relaxing tea that can be enjoyed any time of day without inducing sleepiness. Sugimoto's relaxing Kukicha has a mildly sweet, umami flavor, and an intoxicating floral fragrance that makes this a favorite tea to enjoy in the afternoon or evening.

Company History:

The history of Sugimoto Tea Company starts with Zenichi Sugimoto. In 1946, Shizuoka and the rest of Japan was just at the start of a long road to post-war recovery. Looking for the best way to help his family and his community, Zenichi decided to hand-make tea and delivered it to all of his customers by bike. His teas were so well-liked by the locals that soon it was necessary to build a factory to meet the high demands for Sugimoto tea. And so, Sugimoto Seicha was born.
