Japanese Kokeicha Loose Leaf Green Tea Shade Grown For Low Astringency Also Low Caffeine.


  • This is a very traditional Japanese green tea. 
  • The tea plants are ‘shade grown’ under a bamboo sunshade.
  • This type of growing which is commonly used in Japanese green tea production imparts a particular astringent flavour to the leaves. 
  • This Kokeicha green tea has a milder astringency possibly due to leaves being first pulverised and then pressed. 
  • It is the pressing, which causes the Kokeicha tea to take on its unmistakable appearance.
  •  The tea looks just like a collection of fir needles.
  • It produces a yellowish infusion of unusual taste. It is a similar production to the other classical powdered Japanese green tea, used in the tea ceremony called Matcha Kyomukashi. 
  •  As with other Japanese Green Teas it's preferable to use hot (75-80°C) rather than boiling water to temper any bitterness.
  •  You will receive 45 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 22 cups and 44 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, this can be re-infused up to three times. This works out at between twenty-two pence and eleven pence per cup.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
