Origin: Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
Like the famed gyokuro, the tea known as kabuse-cha is shade grown—but for a shorter amount of time. This process creates a tea with the freshness of sencha and the richness of gyokuro. This particular tea comes from the famed Uji region outside of Kyoto. Enjoy its deep, mildly sweet flavor and vibrant green color.
