Kukicha, or twig tea, is made of the twigs/stalks of sencha or gyokuro and tea leaves. The twigs give the tea a unique grassy and fresh sweetness. You can almost smell some grassy breeze from a meadow. This tea is suitable to drink in summer and in ice and has relatively lower caffeine.
Higher grade of kukicha is made of the twigs of gyokuro and is called Karigane. On top of the sweetness of kukicha, it has a bit of salty and umami flavour from the gyokuro.
