If you have travelled to Kyoto, Japan, you may have come across this Kouyoucha as you visited Buddhist temples, and places of accomodation. Indeed, the Kyoto Kouyoucha has been the number 1 product sold annually in Kyoto. This matcha blend includes matcha from Kyoto, powdered shiso (perilla leaves), ume (Japanese plum), and konbu (kelp seaweed) which together creates a savory, mellow, and salty combination that is sure to help bring you to enlightenment.
In Japan, kombu (kelp/seaweed) is an essential aspect of the Japanese cuisine. The konbu is dried, then it is often cut into small pieces or crushed into a powder. Konbu is often utilized in celebratory occasions to symbolize felicity. This is because the sound 'konbu' is similar to the word 'yorokobu' which means 'to rejoice' in Japanese. Because the ingredients of this tea are often utilized in Japanese cuisine, you can also experiment using this tea in your cuisine as flavoring or to make ochazuke. Enjoy!
