Konacha is made of tea buds, dust, and small leaves that are filtered during tea processing. It has a strong flavor and an intense green color. Another name is 'sushi-tea (sushi-cha)' because it has been served in sushi restaurants. This easy-to-make, thick green konacha was convenient for quick preparation. Usually, a bamboo strainer is used. Takeo's konacha is made by tea leaves taken only from the ichiban-cha (first harvest tea).
