Episode 084: Oi Ocha


While I was in Austin for SXSW, I had a can of this delicious iced green tea called Oi Ocha from Ito En. It paired perfectly with the Poor Qui’s Buns and Brussels Sprout salad from East Side King.

It’s important to note that this tea is not sweetened. (My taste buds tell me this is an iced bancha, but I could be wrong.) I picked up some slight bitterness and a bit of a grassy/eggy taste, but the sweetness of the food I was eating counteracted that. Your mileage may vary, but I wanted you to be aware.

Pick some up at your local Japanese market, or buy it directly from Ito En!
