According to Maiko Tea this blend is a combination of matcha, kukicha, genmai and kelp. Can you say green? This was probably one of the most visually interesting teas I have ever seen. There were so many different shapes and textures, all covered in the bright green matcha powder. I steeped this tea in a kyusu using 175 degree water and one minute infusions.

The first infusion was yellowish green and almost translucent because of the matcha. I was expecting a lot of vegetal flavor because of the green tea overload but that was not the case. It was nutty and sweet in a very mild way. The second was much clearer but still very bright green in color. The taste did not change much between infusions. If you are a fan of Japanese greens then this is right up your alley. I would definitely recommend this tea.
