Organic Kabusecha


Score: 5.00. Votes: 11

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

    Great price and quality for top notch organic sencha. I purchase this product for three reasons: 1) It's organic, 2) It's a great price, 3) It's not as astringent and has less bite than some of the other varieties. I say this because I am a little burnt out on the Yutaka Midori varieties. This Kabusecha has a great mild mouthfeel without sacrificing flavor.

    The tea is very delicate, so much so that at first I thought it was a little bit weak, but after adding slightly more leaf to less water, the tea is brilliant! Strong enough without being bitter. It is both sweet and buttery with pleasant grassy aromas. Definitley give it a try!

    Beautiful tea! I used alot of tea leaf, with little amount of water(just to cover tea leaves). And results are pretty impressive. First infusion is full of beautiful aroma, and great balance of sweetness and umami. After first infusion aroma is less strong, but taste sustains very well. Enjoyed the tea very much! (Sorry for my english)

    I like this tea very much, the color of leaves so emerald, color and taste of tea itself grassy and pleasant.

    Very interesting tea. Brewed at low temperature the taste is mellow, round and grassy, full of umami that is followed by a pleasant astringent finish. Excellent overall balance..
