Furyu – Bancha Goishicha

Goishicha is a fermented green tea from Kochi prefecture. To make goishicha the tea leaves are steamed, stack, covered with a mat and ferment. After that the tea leaves are filled into a barrel where a weigh is placed on the top to continue fermenting. Finally, the tea is dried in the sun. The tea is called "goishicha" because it looks like "goishi", a Japanese chees.

Description of vendor:

Rare, unique tea called Goishicha produced in Kochi Prefecture.

Goishicha is made through a special method called after-fermentation. Although this tea has been drunk and loved by people living on the islands of Setonaikai (Inland Sea of Japan), it is known as an extremely rare tea because of the decline in its production. At one point there was only one producer of this tea.

The tea tastes a bit sour so we recommend that it be served cold. (Make sure to cool the tea in the refrigerator after brewing the tea.)

This particular tea is grown organically, without the use of pesticides.

Steeping Notes:

  • Kyusu (teapot) Brewing

    Prepare a kyusu that holds 350 cc (1.5 cups, 11.9 fl oz). Put one piece of Goishicha into the teapot and pour boiling water. Wait for 4-5 minutes. Enjoy until third-fourth steep.

  • Kettle Brewing

    Boil about 2L (8.5 cups, 68 fl oz) of water in a kettle and put 2-3 pieces of Goishicha into the kettle. Brew over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.

  • Cooking Rice

    Goishicha was originally used for making chagayu, rice porridge. Use the brewed tea to cook rice instead of water. When using a rice cooker, put 1 gram (0.03 fl oz) of Goishicha to 180 ml (6.13 oz) of rice. This is add a light, smoky flavor to the rice.

Vzácný čaj, který má netradiční vzhled i chuť. Doporučuje se pít dobře vychlazený, má nakyslou chuť, jako po citrusech, která se v ústech posléze promění sladší z kouřovým aroma na patře. Čaj doporučuji ochutnat nevšední zážitek.
