Kabuse tea is a shaded tea, which means that the tea plants are covered for several days before harvesting. As a result of the lack of light, the flavor accumulates in the leaves, resulting in extremely soft teas.
This Kabuse tea is well-known for its freshness and vegetal, seafood, fruity, and floral flavors.
This tea is certified organic by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
