Konacha (粉茶?) or Bud Tea is a type of green tea, composed of the dust, tea buds and small leaves that are left behind after processing Gyokuro or Sencha. Konacha is cheaper than Sencha and is often served at sushi restaurants. It is also marketed as Gyokurokocha (玉露粉茶?).

My package arrived from veryasia.com. Stocked up on some boba and thai tea and threw this on my order for the heck of it since one of the sushi bars I go to offers Yamamotoyama. For a cheap tea bag this is nice! A strongly flavored, not bitter, satisfying, no hassle green tea.. I’m in!

Second trimester and I am craving asian food like no other! Have a bowl of pot sticker filling marinating in the fridge for tomorrow, rolled out a batch of home made won ton wrappers and just enjoyed some cold soba noodles with sesame oil and soy sauce. Can’t wait to make some bubble tea, they only offer it at one place here in flagstaff and it’s ridiculously expensive for a sickeningly sweet drink made with overcooked boba.

I’ve got lots of teas to backlog. Times have been busy, will post soon!

Good thing you’re making your own because of the salt…not so good for mama. You must be so excited for the baby to arrive though…how exciting!

Sounds interesting and good! My daughter is making ramen right now with sesame and peanut sauce and I am having sencha :) Love the Asian food even if it is sort of tossed together haha. Your Asian food sounds far fancier than our ramen but I love anything with peanut sauce!
