Kabusecha – Spring ’14

Uji, Japan
Partially Shade Grown Green Tea


A delicious Japanese leaf tea for any occasion. Literally translated as "Covered Tea", these plants are carefully shielded from the sun for a short period of time before harvesting causing the plant to produce more chlorophyll to make up for the lower level of sunlight. The result is a succulent sweetness and a heavy, savory "umami" aftertaste. This tea's character is somewhere between Sencha and Gyokuro, as it is not covered for as long as a Gyokuro.

A truly outstanding tea that strikes a perfect balance between deep green notes of spinach and seaweed, tropical fruitiness, a slightly astringent grassyness, and a smooth, sweet buttery finish.
