Kukicha is unique in that its primary impact lies in its alkalizing abilities. It helps to alkalize our body’s fluids and tissues. Thus, it may balance acidity levels and may help in preventing disease. It may also help to maintain proper functioning of kidneys and liver. Kukicha has the strongest alkalizing ability of any Japanese tea.
