      Organic Kabusecha

      This organic kabusecha green tea comes from Kirishima City, Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves. Organic Kabusecha is grown for 14 to 20 days under 45% shade before harvest giving it taste characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. This version comes from the Yabukita clone and is lightly steamed.  The aroma is unusually strong, it has a lovely green color and is quite flavorful.  Brew as you would for sencha. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

      Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

        (2023 batch)This tea is probably overlooked quite often, but it is a great tea! It's a very flavorful, but a mellow and light tea. For someone who might not want a strong flavored tea, this is the one. Dont let the lack of strength and complexity scare you though, it's really delicious and very flavorful. With a healthy dose of umami, and a very good expression of the classic yabukita cultivar with its grassy light steamed tea flavor; I really enjoyed this one. For some this will become their daily drinker, as its priced reasonably. Great choice since its also synthetic pesticide and herbicide free, so its cleaner and healthier. This tea is best for the morning, and early afternoon, as the shaded teas typically have a bit more caffeine than full sun senchas. Excellent tea for the morning time. 2023 batch will not disappoint!

        I am so pleased this tea is back in stock this year. It’s even better than I remember. One of my favorites for sure.

        Good quality and fresh tea! It's pretty stimulating in a good way. I recommend to not steep more then 60 seconds. I can steep 3 times with same leaf.

        Despite the fact that this tea is a bit light and mild, it still has a great taste. I'll carry on trying other ones, but I already know that it's great quality for the price.

        I'm not a fan of most organic green teas because they are often not as good as their non organic counterparts (although they've gotten better over the years). But this kabusecha tastes really good. I even like it a bit better than the non organic kabusecha from o-cha.

        I liked this tea so much so I re-ordered it. It is mild but still rich in flavor. And it is awesome value for the price. I hope I could find the same quality and price of this tea in 2017 as well.

        This was my first order from O-Cha, and I was extremely pleased. I've made several brews, all very consistent. Grassy flavor as others have mentioned, with a mild sweetness. It tastes almost like it is thick, but isn't. Wonderful heavy umami. Very little bitterness.
