Want to try all of our incredible stem teas at once? With this sample pack, you can try a 5 gram sample of 4 different stem teas from different regions around Japan. We have the Sakamoto Kukicha from Kagoshima, the Kukicha from Yakushima Island, the Kukicha Osada from Shizuoka and finally the Karigane from Mr. Sakamoto. This is a good way to build up your palate and really get a good experience of what a stem tea tastes like. Stem teas are known for their nice fresh summer grass and hay note, and they can be a nice evening tea with low caffeine. It also is an alkalizing tea that won't upset your stomach and can even help with digestion.
