Green tea has gained tremendous popularity in the last decade or so because of the huge amount of health benefits that it possesses. Its origin lies in Japan and is also known as bōcha. This unique Japanese blend of green tea is special because unlike other teas, it is not made of leaves but rather from twigs, stems, and stalks. This is the reason it is also known as twig tea, stem tea, or stalk tea worldwide. These parts belong to the plant Camellia sinensis.

This tea is highly popular in Japan and has a slightly sweet flavor to it with a fresh green aroma. The reason for it being sweet is because of the presence of L-theanine which is naturally produced in its roots and thus transferred to the stems.

Here we have the easiest Kukicha Green Tea recipe that you can make at home. The recipe serves one and you can double the ingredients accordingly.
