Kokeicha: Something Different In Green Tea


There are very few really unique teas. Pu-erh is unique because it gets better with age instead of staling like other teas. Matcha is unique because the tea leaves are ground into a fine powder that is brewed by simply adding water. Our featured tea this week is another unique tea, Kokeicha.Kokeicha is an extruded tea made from Matcha and a bit of rice flour which binds it and adds just a hint of extra sweetness to the brew. This tea also does not brew like other green teas. You can either brew Kokeicha with boiling water for 1 minute or 180 F degrees for 3 minutes. The brew has a delicate aroma with a hint of spinach and the flavor is smooth and complex with hints of minerals and leafy greens with a sweet and slightly mineral finish. The unbrewed tea makes a crunchy addition to rices, salads or ground and used to season seafood. This week Kokeicha is our featured tea and is discounted 20% and you can win a 4 ounce bag of this weeks featured tea by leaving a message here or at Culinary Cafe and leaving a comment on this weeks giveaway.
