Partially shade grown Japanese green tea

SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , ,



Kabusecha is a partially shade grown green tea from Japan.  Grown in Uji right outside the famous city of Kyoto, this special green tea is shaded for a couple weeks before harvest.  This tea is shaded for less time than the other famous shade grown Japanese tea, Gyokuro.  The shading forces the plant to change its amino acids and develop more sweet and savory flavors.

This Kabusecha is comprised of deep green leaves and has a unique floral quality and aroma that elevates the green, grassy, vegetal flavors to another level.  A complex tea that is both deep in flavor and light on the pallet.
