Go Spotting: Goishicha Tea

Tuesday February 17, 2015

“The rare, post-fermented tea called Goishicha is made in the town of Ōtoyo in the mountains of central Kochi Prefecture on the island of OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAShikoku,” according to the Yunomi tea website. “The name, goishicha (碁石茶), is taken from the Japanese game Igo because the tea is reminiscent of the stones used in the game.” “I haven’t tasted this,” says Richard Simon, who passed this along. “It may not be everyone’s cup of tea.”
