After Gyokuro, Kabusecha is considered to be the most sought after leaf tea in Japan. This tea has been shaded for a longer time, reducing the bitterness and increasing the sweetness of the tea. This tea comes to us from the Gokou cultivar, a quite rare tea variety in Japan that is famous for its powerful savory flavor. With this Kabusecha, the powerful savory note does not overpower the tea. There is a nice light sweetness to it and a smooth and round finish.

About the Farm
The region of Yame in Northern Kyushu is famous for its production of premium shaded teas like Gyokuro and Kabusecha. Although does not produce a lot of green tea compared to regions like Shizuoka and Kagshima, it makes up for it with its exceptional quality. We are so excited to have found a green tea from Yame that meets our standards.
How to Brew it
Add 5 grams of leaves to the teapot or strainer and then pour in 150ml to 200ml of water (160 degrees Fahrenheit) and let the tea brew for 1 minute. You can brew the leaves 2-3 more times with the same temperature for 20 seconds each
