This Makinohara Kukicha, or ‘twig tea’ as it is sometimes known, is an award-winning, Japanese green tea made from both Sencha leaves and stems. The unique addition of the latter, which can be seen in the mixed colour of the dry leaf, lends the infusion an extra sweetness thanks to the naturally high sugar content of this part of the leaf. The result is a sweet, easy-drinking take on the distinctive grassy and verdant profile of a typical Sencha.

Sweet and juicy, with a delicate, nutty aroma - this might just be your new favourite green tea.

OUR APPROACH

Quality

We work hard to find, taste and select exceptional teas, first and foremost looking for quality and flavour in the cup. We focus on single-origin, whole leaf teas where the character is a direct reflection of the area in which it is grown, as well as the craft involved in growing, plucking and processing the leaves.

There are an infinite number of teas being produced every year, so our role is to find and bring you some of the best. Our care in curating the range, as well as the quality of the product itself, has earned us both our customers’ trust and multiple Great Taste awards.

Sourcing

Not only does the tea need to taste good, it is also important to us that we know exactly where each tea comes from and who is responsible for harvesting and crafting the leaves we buy.

We work exclusively with trusted farms, co-operatives, partners and suppliers who share our values. We source from 13 growing regions around the world, always paying well above fair-trade prices.

Brewing

Sourcing and curating a collection of delicious, award-winning teas from around the world is only the beginning. We then provide the knowledge and tools you need to help you bring out the best possible flavour in every cup when brewing at home.

As a team of passionate brewers, blenders, tasters, curators and, perhaps most importantly, drinkers of delicious tea, we get excited about helping you make a delicious cup of tea every time.

Packaging

We are committed to reducing any environmental impact our packaging has before and after use. There is no perfect solution so we focus on keeping it as minimal and as natural as possible, without compromising on the quality of our product. We are proud to say that our entire retail range is now both fully compostable and 100% plastic-free. Find out more here.
