Item description

- We are Japanese Seller - This product is 100% Japanese Original New and NOT Chinese imitation. Please, enjoy safe shopping. [EMS-Free-Worldwide] Expedited ship: with Tracking Insurance. You can receive the item about in 2-5 days worldwide. Product Description Konacha may be translated as powdered tea (kona means powder), but it is not actually powder but a tea made up of smallest bits of tea leaves that are left over after processing. Konacha is known as tea served in sushi restaurants (especially in Edo, Tokyo) due its low cost, quick steeping time, and the bitter taste that erases the flavor of fishiness left in the mouth. However, it must be distinguished from funmatsucha, powdered tea, that is often served at a kaiten-zushi. Although konacha is small like powder, it is still tea leaves so the leaves remain in a tea cup or teapot after steeping, unlike the powdered tea in which the powder dissolves in hot water. Bamboo strainer was used to for steeping konacha but this custom is not seen so much today. PRODUCT INFO NAME Ureshino Konacha INGREDIENTS 100% green tea leaves grown in Ureshino of Saga Prefecture SUPPLIER INFO Chakouan Chakouan Yamaguchi Seichaen Co, Ltd. is based in the city of Imari, Saga Prefecture, a city known worldwide for its famous Imari-yaki (scroll down for more information on Imari-yaki). FROM THE CEO, Yukiyo Nakajima: I was born in Ureshino city of Saga prefecture, where I played and grew up, surrounded by tea farm owned by my grandfather. My brother inherited the farm and is responsible for farm labor and production. I am in charge of sales, where I enjoy greeting our customers. I began selling tea at the Imari Morning Market, and I have been here ever since. I am honored to be in the tea business, having the opportunity to offer Japanese tea to customers. We curate a selection of teas produced in different parts of the Kyushu region. From Saga: Ureshino-cha and Hinatagou-cha; from Fukuoka: Yame-cha; from Kagoshima: Kagoshima-cha. We hope to provide products that will satisfy our customers. ABOUT IMARIYAKI Imari-yaki is a porcelain made in Arita region of former Hizen Province (today’s Saga Prefecture) in Kyushu, Japan. Originally known as Arita-yaki, named after its production region, it became to be known as Imari-yaki when the porcelain was exported to Europe in the 17th century from Imari port, Saga. Ko-imari, literally old imari in Japanese, refers to Imari ware produced in the Edo period (17th-19th century). Today the name Arita-yaki is distinguished from Imari-yaki: porcelain made in Arita is called Arita-yaki and in Imari as Imari-yaki. Chakouan’s products are not limited to tea but also tea wares: Imari-yaki and Arita-yaki from Saga prefecture. Please enjoy their tea in a beautiful Imari and Arita tea wares.

Standard Steeping Technique (Steeping Notes) Remember, these techniques are guidelines meant to start you off. Depending on your own personal taste, the water type you have available, and of course the specific tea leaves, you should learn to adjust the water amount, temperature, tea leaf amount and steep time to achieve your perfect cup of tea. Serves: One person (or two people with smaller cups) Water amount: 1 tea cup / 6 oz / 180 cc / 180 ml Water temperature: 70-100C / 158-212F degrees (NOTE: Use lower temp for less astringency, higher temp for more astringency.) Tea leaves amount: 1 tablespoon / 5 grams Teaware: Any teapot will do, although Japanese teapots (kyusu) are the best. Yokkaichi bankoyaki kyusu will actually absorb the bitterness of the tea as it is steeped. If you do not have a teapot, you can use a wide bowl or mug cup, then filter using a net. Paper filters are not recommended, but we’re farmers, we understand you sometimes have to make do with what you have. First steeping (issen me) 1. Place leaves into teapot. 2. Boil water and pour into the teapot. 3. Wait about 30 seconds. (20 seconds for kabuse sencha, shincha and delicate leaves) 4. Pour into cup to drink. Second steeping (nisen me) Same process but steep for a quick 10 seconds. The leftover water clinging to the leaves from the first steeping after you’ve poured the tea into your cup is still drawing out the flavor from the leaves. So this second steeping is very quick. Third steeping (sansen me) and more… Same process but steep for 30 seconds. “And more”? What does that mean you ask? To be truthful, some of us continue steeping the leaves like this for 5, 6, or even 7 times. It’s a matter of personal taste how light do you like your tea. However, after the 4th steeping, most people will probably say the flavor is gone. Houjicha is especially good for multiple steepings, and a little known secret: take the brewed houjicha leaves, steep it overnight in the refrigerator, and you’ll end up with a light, sweet iced houjicha in the morning. The last of the sugar from the stems is drawn out with this method. Thank you for visiting our page. We ship the product responsibly from Tokyo Japan.
