Flavor: Vegetal, Slight Grassy Notes, Smooth and Sweet Finish

Kabusecha, covered tea, is a type of Japanese Sencha that is somewhat of a mid-point between Sencha and Gyokuro. Kabusecha is grown similarly to Sencha tea leaves, however it is shaded like Gyokuro.  This shading is only done for about half the time as Gyokuro, so for about 12 days.  Our Kabusecha offers the refreshing flavor of Sencha with some of the sweet, umami flavor of a Gyokuro. The dry leaf is glossy and deep green in color with a highly fragrant and sweet aroma. Once infused, our Kabusecha tea has a less grassy, more vegetal and less astringent green tea taste with a sweet and smooth finish and full mouth feel.

Tea shipped in our Teas New Jersey storage tins can remain stored in their tins for long periods of time.  Tea leaves are best stored in dry, dark containers with little air and safe from odors.  Our tins are small and compact with little space for air to sit.  They are great sizes for storing and stacking.  We recommend purchasing tea in one of our tins if you do not have storage that fits the above qualifications.  However, if you have storage and are ready for a larger amount of tea, you might consider selecting our 3oz pouch option, which you could transfer to a tin upon receiving.
