Sold Out until 2019 Harvest (Approx May-June 2019)
This green tea comes from Kirishima City, Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves. Organic Sae Midori Kabusecha is grown for 14 to 20 days under 45% shade before harvest giving it taste characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. This light steamed (asamushi) version comes from the Sae Midori clone and it is somewhat rare to be processed in kabusecha form. A sweeter, less astringent taste than regular sencha, 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
