What is Kabuse Sencha?
The Japanese word “Kabuse” means shaded.
Kabuse Sencha or shaded tea, is a premium tea rich in Umami.
Produced by covering the tea plants just after new leaves begin to sprout in early May,
the shade reduces sunlight by as much as 85% to encourage the plants to produce wide, tender, chlorophyll-rich tea leaves.
Distinctive and intense lingering Umami, sweet and rich.
Vegetal with subtle notes of spinach and a thick mouthfeel.
The taste changes remarkably depending on the brewed temperature.

The brewing temperature affects the color of the tea.
When brewed with lukewarm water, it has a golden color, when brewed under ice cubes, its brilliance increases,
and when brewed with boiling water, it gets bright green.
The characteristic of the color of this tea is that it is transparent and different from the green of deep steamed tea.
