From O-Cha.com

Grown organic near the Warashina river in Shizuoka, this green tea is harvested from the first round of young leaves. Lightly steamed (asamushi), single estate, non-blended from one farm. Kabusecha is grown for 14 to 20 days before harvest under 45% shade, giving it taste characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. A sweeter, less astringent taste than regular sencha, it has a lovely green color. Brew as you would for sencha. Certified organic. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Trying a new-to-me green tea from o-cha.com. This kabusecha has a very, very light liquor and mild flavor, slightly sweet. Grassy, not bitter. 175 is a bit hotter than I usually steep my Japanese green tea at, but I decided to follow the suggested preparation parameters marked on the packaging. I’m extremely happy with the results!

I tried to like this, but it is too light for me. Not a bad tea, but very light color and flavor. Nevertheless, it does has some sweetness and umami. I brewed at 175 degrees and found it to be too astringent. I recommend 158 (or 70 C).
