KONOMI - KOICHA
As much as we love single cultivars, we admire the balance and elegance that Konomi San achieves with this koicha grade tea.
The smooth, silky mouthfeel is typical of koicha from Yame. The green tea leave a pleasant, mildly bitter sensation on the sides of the tongue, which gives way to a sweet sensation in the palate.
Tasting notes: green almonds, beet greens.

About the Producer
Konomi San's family started their tea business in the Edo period; they were the first family to become tea merchants in the Island of Kyushu. In that period, most of the local teas were kama-iri cha.
In the late Meiji period, Konomi's family were some of the pioneers that imported some production techniques from Uji; as a result of these pioneers, Yame is now famous for its stunning gyokuro and matcha.
