Kabusecha (shade-grown)


Kabusecha is a tea that has grown in shade for approximately one week before picking. This process produces a juicier leaf with a higher content of chlorophyll making the tea taste sweeter and nuanced. Also present in increased quantity due to the shade growing technique is L-theanine, an amino acid that might help with mental focus and better sleep quality.

Japanese green tea can be enjoyed cold, as well as warm, as these teas have a mild and fresh taste. You can also brew the cold tea in cold water, but the leaves just have to brew for a long time. Recommend to brew in a glass jug and leave in the fridge over-night.

This tea is from our producer Hoshino Seicha in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan.
