The colour kobicha (媚茶) is one of the Japanese traditional colours that has been in use since 660 CE in the form of various dyes used in designing kimonos.

The name kobicha comes from the Japanese for the colour of a type of kelp tea, but the word was often used as a synonym for a form of flattery; in a curious parallel with the English usage “brown nosing”.
