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

It is said that it is great pleasure for tea connoisseurs to find highest quality Gyokuro Konacha. Made from the specks and tiny tea leaves of premium Gyokuro tea leaves, Gyokuro Konacha has a unique and delicately sweet flavor.

Gyokuro Konacha Super Premium is an excellent value. Because it is made from the specks and tiny tea leaves of only the highest quality Gyokuro, such as Gyokuro Pinnacle, Super Premium, Kuradashi Gyokuro Pinnacle, and Super Premium, you can have the finest quality 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 Gyokuro tea leaves. The brewing time is half of usual Gyokuro tea leaves.

Even in Kyoto, known around the world as the center of Japanese green tea culture and production, it is difficult to find top grade Gyokuro Konacha. Konacha accounts for only 10% of all tea leaves. Besides, top quality tea leaves are grown in limited quantity. Fortunately we are able to offer Gyokuro Konacha Super Premium, but only as a limited edition item and available only this season.

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 Gyokuro tea leaves. The brewing time is half of regular Gyokuro tea leaves. The other brewing matters, tea leaves and water amount and water temperature are the same as regular Gyokuro.
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.
