Kabuse Konacha Superior
Konacha is a by-product that is born from the processing of Japanese tea. Although not a fine powder like Matcha, Konacha is made of the tea dust and tea flakes that fall off the leaf while processing the teas. Due to the fact that Konacha is composed of tea dust and small flakes, the tea is quickly absorbed into the hot water, and is what is used in most Sushi restaurants.
Sweet and Mellow Kabuse Konacha
Our Kabuse Konacha uses Kabuse (shaded) leaves, and has a sweet and mellow flavor. Being Konacha, the tea is strong and bold, rich in flavor, and full of all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrition that you find in green tea.
The reason this tea is favored in the Sushi restaurants, is because of its super quick brew time, its easy handling, and because of its refreshing, yet strong flavor that in preparation for the next sushi.
Cheaper than Full Tea Leaves
Due to the fact that this tea is a by-product, it is considerably cheaper than the full leaves, yet is often easier to find good konacha than it is to find good full leaf teas.
The only drawback is that the entire flavor is “used up” in the first infusion, and it leaves very little left for a second or third infusion. On the other hand, all the goodness is packed into the first infusion so is great for tea on the go!
