Our Yuzu Kukicha with Matcha is made with first flush Kukicha, dried Yuzu chips, and a hint of Matcha. Yuzu is not usually consumed by itself due to its sourness; instead, its rind is used as a garnish or small slivers are added to dishes to enhance their flavor. Since Yuzu is usually available only in the winter in Japan, we stock this tea only for a few months or while supplies last.

Origin: Shizuoka
Harvest: First Flush
Species: Yabukita

Tasting Profile:
Yuzu is distinct from lemons, limes, or any other Western citrus fruit. The impressive mild green vegetable flavor of Kukicha is perked up by the unique citrus flavor while the Matcha adds a little sweetness.

Den's Preferred Brewing:
Leaf-water ratio: 2-3g(1 heaping tsp) per 4oz
Water: 180F

2nd Cup: Water boiled; Steep 15 sec
