I’ve never had kukicha tea before – from what I gather it’s made from the stems and twigs of green tea, rather than the leaves.

The tea has quite a sweet flavour, though I’m not sure if this is due to the blueberry flavouring or the kukicha itself which is supposed to be sweeter than its leaf counterparts. The blueberry is fruity and natural-tasting, which I’m always in favour of. There’s also none of the bitterness or mouth-drying astringency that you get with many types of green teas; this is quite sweet and smooth. It doesn’t taste overly vegetale either, having more of a fuller, richer taste.

This is really nice. The flavor is sweet, vegetal and very blueberry-ish. The blueberry is sweet with a hint of tart. The aroma of the brewed tea is a little “off” but it isn’t off-putting. I guess the best way to describe it is a combination of asparagus and berry. A little weird, but, not bad.

This smells awesome prior to infusion. After infusion, however, the liquid is EXTREMELY murky-green. It doesn’t smell as nice…but you can still smell the blueberry with a dandelion and sweet grass smell added in. It tastes like Blueberry right away and then morphs into an artificial sweetner type taste. It’s actually not bad…just a little scary when you look at it at first! LOL

Blueberry goodness! This tea is very interesting. This was my first experience with the twig tea. I can’t believe how much of that tea plant is usable! The blueberry isn’t overwhelming. I got 3 brews from this. I don’t think I would buy this again, but I am interested in having the green kukicha by itself. I agree, the blueberry comes off artificial. I don’t know if the flavoring was.
