Kabusecha | Green Tea
From Japan's southern island of Kagoshima, Kabusecha translates to "covered tea" and is shade-grown (like Gyokuro) for the final 15-20 days before plucking. It's grown from the Saemidori (or "clear green") cultivar, known for its intense aroma, bright green color, and light bitterness and astringency. A complex cup with a sweet, almost chard-like flavor and a lingering finish. Only available in 2 ounce quantities.
