Organic Kabusecha


Bio Tee ökologischem Anbau nach EU-Öko-Verordnung

From organic cultivation according to the EU Organic Regulation, controlled by DE-ÖKO-039.

Fruity but mild, acidic yet delicate, rich in flavour and still balanced, this Kabusecha is a treat to experience. Kabusecha, also known as Kabuse Sencha, falls in intensity between two better-known Japanese green teas, Sencha and Gyokuro, to which it offers an interesting alternative, preferred by some connoisseurs. Indeed, sipping this 'half-shaded‘ tea may well evoke strolling through the cool confines of a hedge maze in summer.


How is Kabusecha cultivated?

Japanese teas are generally classified according to their type of cultivation. Kabusecha falls between Gyokuro and Sencha, and can be considered a half-shaded tea. Whereas Gyokuro is covered for the last several weeks of cultivation, and Sencha isn't covered at all, Kabusecha is shaded for a shorter time with partially translucent nets.
