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 2017, 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

    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.

    One of my favorites from O-Cha. It's easy to get a very rich flavor from this tea with little astringency. Very smooth.

    Nice and fresh. Easy to brew; anywhere between 65 to 72 deg. C for starting temperature is good.

    This is one of my favorite teas. Every sip provides a pleasant, understand buttery mouthfeel, fresh grass umami, and a hint of astringency at the end. it's a fantastic value. This is definitely a "green" green tea, but could serve as an everyday drinker. Brewed with ~300ml at 175F for 60sec/30/60 in a Fukamushi teapot.
