Uji Green Tea Map
 
(8 reviews)  

From the first harvest in Uji. Kabusecha is grown in the shade for 14~20 days before harvest under 45% shade, giving it characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. A sweeter, less astringent taste than regular sencha, it is a lovely green color with a clear, not-so-cloudy. A very pleasant, refreshing green tea. Brew as you would for sencha, not gyokuro.

Available in 100 gram packages.

Just everyday tea. It has a hint of gyokuro but doesn't compare to gyokuro at all. Reasonable for the price.

As for the tea itself, it is a nice green tea if you don't give a higher expectation of gyokuro.

Easy to brew.

Advantages: Good day to day green tea.

Disadvantages: Just everyday tea.

Great "Everyday" Tea
Just purchased this, a great value compared to the sencha I was getting at the "big name" retailers. It's easy to brew correctly, and has a nice flavor. It's not as sweet as some of the gyokuros I've tried, which I'd prefer, but it's a great tea for when I'm at work and have only the electric kettle and distractions making me miss the clock sometime. Definitely going to be added to my shopping list!

Advantages: easy brewing, good flavor, great value

Disadvantages: Not as sweet as some gyokuros

I am new to drinking green tea and love this tea. I could not stand the box tea I was buying at my local store, I am so glad I found your company, great quality and service! I am anxious to try other teas on your site.

first infusion is heavenly, a good flavor of sencha with tones of gyokuro on the tongue, subsequence brews are a lot weaker, usually goes for 3 infusion for mine, i use slightly hot water 74C at 90-100 secs. find that anything below that came out quite weak.

This tea is a good, cheap way to get introduced to the gyokuro side of things. Fairly easy to brew but sometimes difficult to balance between too light and slightly over brewed. Very good complex flavor and aroma.
