From Teavana

This uniquely creamy emerald green blend is comprised of an exceptional grade of Matcha powder combined with delicately roasted Kukicha. It is a great tea for macrobiotic diets.

By combining Matcha with Kukicha, or Japanese Twig Tea, you get the best of both worlds: a creamy texture with the full flavor of green tea. It’s a health lover’s delight!

How to Prepare
This tea is made like a traditional green tea, rather than a Matcha. Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8 ounces of water. Heat water to 175 degrees and steep for 2 minutes. 2 ounces of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.

Ingredients:
Kukicha green tea (leaves, stems, and twigs) and Matcha (powdered Tencha leaves).

So far I havn’t had much from non flavored green teas, but figure i’ll try again. This time i actually payed attention to the steeping instructions.
Not bad, doesn’t taste bitter like previous times i’ve had this tea, probably because i steeped it way less than I had previously.
To me I doesn’t have alot of taste, but maybe that’s how green tea is supposed to taste? It smells very good and has a cozy feel to it, but pretty much tastes like hot water to me with a little tea aftertaste.

If you’re steeping and decanting this, it really can’t be compared to regular matcha. As far as other greens, all greens (especially Japanes greens) are not created equal and can be vastly different depending on you prepare them. Here’s a great resource (Den’s, w/ the sampler) on how to prepare greens:

Too get a more favorable (and stronger) flavor you may want to tweek the steeping parameters a bit, especially the tea:water ratio. 2g (1 heaping tsp) of leaves steeped in 3oz of 180F purified water for 1 min may work better for you. I hope it does!

Thanks moraiwe for this sample!

Kukicha is one of my favorite green teas. This tea doesn’t taste much different than regular kukicha that I’ve tried from difference sources except that it is much greener in the cup and slightly bitter. I like it well enough, but I will probably just stick to my plain kukichas.

i steeped for two minutes as per the instructions but found it to be bitter and unpleasant. i love the idea of this tea, but i’m not sure it’s for me. i’ll try again with cooler water and a shorter steeping time and see if that helps.

Definitely try it at 1 min. I have no clue why they put 2 min but it is far to long.

Definitely the best of both worlds — powdered matcha and roasted kukicha — and so delicious. Plus, I love a beautiful cup of true green tea!

I enjoyed this tea while it lasted. The mix with matcha was wonderful and it made for a nice, vegetal tea. I’ve found similar and higher quality blends for better prices however.
