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!

I used to drink the heck out of this, along with Stash’s sushi green tea. I used to love this tea, but now? It’s old news. It’s good for when you are just starting off, and it had its place in time. But I have had too many awesome teas to replace this old standby.

I don’t know what changed, but I have had this twice today and darned if it doesn’t taste just like tea from the pot at the sushi bar. I didn’t measure the water temperature, so my suspicion is that I steeped it hotter than for my initial tasting. I just let the water sit in the kettle for 90 seconds after whistling. Anyway, it wasn’t a significantly different cup of tea, but more as advertised.

Incidentally, I tasted another family member’s cup that had the bag left in for many more minutes (10 minutes?) than mine (same water temperature as mine). It tasted stronger, but not bitter or in any way unpleasant to me. With the price, nice taste, and resistance to steeping time abuse, I could see this as having a semi-permanent home in the cabinet.

Probably the best everyday green tea I’ve tried. Easy brew, much better than most bagged green teas, nice briny taste.
