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 2016 version comes from the Yabukita clone and is medium steamed. We consider this gem to be one of our best aquisitions of 2016, 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
