About This Tea

Japanese tea name: かぶせ茶

Young spring first-harvest leaves are partially shade-grown to produce a beautiful emeral jade liquor with umami. Resulting in a tea high in theanine, this Kabuse from the southern Japanese island of Kagoshima is not as complex and fully robust as a Gyokuro yet still results to a terroir and labor intensive tea which produces a unique sweetness with a brilliant nuance. Recommended brew: 1 Tablespoon | 5g : 140F | 60C : 6oz | 180ml Brew 3-4 min.

A Gem of a Green Tea

This Kabuse tastes like the first moments of spring. The emerald-jade color of the liquid brings to mind images of renewal and growth. I especially enjoyed the balance of sweetness and round, lingering umami. The leaves are too good to waste! After steeping, I tossed the unfurled leaves with a little bit of soy sauce and sesame oil (rice vinegar works well too!) and served on top of a bowl of rice.
