Loose Leaf Green Tea

Origin

The Kabusecha style of Japanese green tea sits midway between Sencha and Gyokuro; like the latter it is partially grown in shade, but a lighter shade than Gyokuro and for a shorter time, usually a week to 10 days.  Ours is from the mountainous, temperate Shizuoka Prefecture in central Japan

Tea Description

By shading the leaves before plucking, the tea bushes produce more chlorophyll, leading to a darker green colour than Sencha and greater umami when tasted.  The tea gives a clear yellow liquor, with a mild, sweet flavour, little astringency and a refreshing finish.

Excellent

Very similar to gyokuro. Sweet and mellow with definitive pure tea taste. Depending on the brew can be a bit astringent and savoury. Amazing bright green color. Together with gyokuro I would consider it to be THE tea.
