Product Description


Konacha or “powder tea” is not to be confused with Matcha, which means “powdered tea.” Being produced from the remnants of other Japanese green tea it’s sometimes thought of as in ferior but that is simply not the case. This Konacha, being produced from the same leaves as Gyokuro, has a rich mouth feel that is coupled with the sweet and savory flavors you would ex pect from Japan. If you are new to Japanese green tea this is the perfect tea to get you in the door.

Steep Time: 20 sec
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: .5
Infusions: 1-3

Japan Gyokuro "Jade Dew" Green Tea

Gyokuro is the pinnacle of Japanese loose leaf green tea. During the annual spring harvest leaves are shaded for around 20 days to increase the potency of the plant. While shaded, the plant continues to produce chlorophyll, but the natural cycle of the sunlight bleaching the leaves is inhibited. The plant also pulls more nutrients from the soil as it is not able to convert the sunshine into energy for itself. The harvest consists of the collection of just the top 3 leaves, which are quickly cut and steamed. The flavor is richly creamy, sweet, and oceanic.

Steep Time: 1-2 min
Water Temp: 140°-170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
