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.
