This item is the limited edition of 600 packages only available this mid-summer season.

Made from premium Sencha specks and tiny tea leaves, Sencha Konacha has a unique and delicately sweet flavor.

Sencha Konacha is an excellent value. Because it is made from the specks and tiny tea leaves of only high quality Sencha, such as Sencha Super Premium, Premium, and Superior, you can have the quality of Premium tea for a fraction of the cost. Konacha, which is generated at the Aracha processing stage and finishing process, like Karigane, is a natural byproduct of traditional tea processing.

Konacha specks are more easily brewed for shorter time than regular Sencha tea leaves. The brewing time is half of usual Sencha tea leaves. It is better to brew in a Kyusu with a fine mesh filter in order to prevent too many tiny specks from being poured into the tea cup.
And it is also suitable for iced tea due to the easy brewing.

Japanese tea connoisseurs tend to search for high quality Konacha which is sorted only from high quality teas, because they know the excellent value of high quality Konacha well. It is a favorite tea for those who like to drink green tea everyday because it has such a rich flavor and is an excellent value.

Konacha

Konacha is made from the specks and tiny tea leaves of Gyokuro or Sencha tea leaves. Konacha is less expensive than tea leaves because Konacha is a natural byproduct of traditional tea processing, like Karigane. Especially Konacha, sorted from high grade tea leaves, has a better flavor than tea leaves of a similarly low price.
Our Konacha is made from specks and tiny tea leaves of high grade Gyokuro or Sencha, because specks sorted from middle or low grade tea leaves have an undesirable flavor.
In Japan, tea connoisseurs search for high quality Konacha. High quality Konacha is sometimes difficult to find. Konacha accounts for only 10% of all tea leaves. Besides, top quality tea leaves are grown in limited quantity. Hibiki-an is able to have a steady supply of Konacha because we grow and sell only high grade tea leaves.

Tip for Brewing Konacha

Konacha specks are more easily brewed for shorter time than regular Sencha tea leaves. The brewing time is half of regular Sencha tea leaves. The other brewing matters, tea leaves and water amount and water temperature are the same as regular Sencha.
Please brew in a Kyusu with a fine mesh filter in order to prevent too many tiny specks from being poured into the tea cup. If you use a Kyusu with a rough mesh filter, please use a tea strainer.
