    Miyama Kabuse

    by Steepster

    Origin:
    Hoshino-mura, Japan
    Flavors:
    Fresh grass, seaweed, umami.
    Description:
    Hoshino-mura is a small village in Fukuoka prefecture that is home to Japan’s finest shaded teas, including this year’s national prize winning Gyokuro. Miyama Kabuse is shaded for ten days prior to picking; a process which boosts levels of theanine, an amino acid responsible for imbuing the tea with a deep, rich flavor.

    Miyazaki, Japan
    Flavors:
    Spun sugar, candied fruit, sweet.
    Description:
    A unique tea produced on a 40 acre organic farm in the southern prefecture of Miyazaki, this tea is completely handmade and unlike anything we’ve tasted in Japan. It is reminiscent of a fine Chinese oolong with notes that last over multiple steeps.

This month we are happy to share the world of Japanese tea with you. Our friend Zach Mangan of Kettl.co is currently in Japan and has personally sourced five teas just for us. While Japan primarily produces green tea, the variety and regional differences are fascinating and widespread. This month, Steepster Select takes you on a journey through five distinct regions of Japan and introduces you to the people who are at the forefront of Japanese tea in 2015.
