konacha

Konacha,

Residual Green Tea

Konacha is the tea dust, tea buds and small tea leaves which remain behind after processing Gyokuro or Sencha. Although considered a lower grade of tea, Konacha complements certain foods well, such as sushi. It is often provided for self-service at inexpensive sushi restaurants.

kocha

Kocha,

Black Tea

Kocha leaves are even more oxidized than Oolong, which gives the tea its dark reddish-brown color. In Japanese, “kocha” means “red tea”. It is produced by a similar process as the oolongcha; allowing the tea leaves to oxidize, and then steaming or roasting them to stop the oxidization process.
