Organic Kabusecha:

Brewing Suggestions

This exceptional Organic Kabusecha is our first offering from the famed Kagashima region of Japan. This Kabusecha is produced using the “shading method” where the tea is shaded, blocking out 90% of sunlight for up to 20 days and then harvested by hand. Teas produced using this method are higher in L-Theanine and amino acids, which contributes to its unique flavors. High quality Japanese green teas are unmatched in concentrated flavors and a dense, full-body texture with savory umami that can only be found in teas of this calibre.

1 of 5 disappointment April 2, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Cedar, MI United States  
I have purchased a variety of teas for many years from Imperial Tea Court and have enjoyed every one until this offering.  The flavor is fine, however the "leaf" is not leafy and reminds me more of the kind of powdered  remains at the bottom of a tea canister after most of the leaf  has been used.  Perhaps this is the form that it's supposed to have, but, if one uses some kind of infusion basket as I do, because the tea is so fine the water barley flow through and then the tea if full of the fine powered leaf.   Unfortunately I purchased 1/4 lb.  If you use an infuser or strainer method, I couldn't recommend this tea as I have received it.

5 of 5 Finally Found It! November 17, 2018
Reviewer: Jessica Rooney from Sayville, NY United States  
When I was 16, many moons ago, I spent a summer in Japan. It was there that I became acquainted with green tea. I have been trying to find that tea, that I drank every morning, for 35+ years! I HAVE FOUND IT! Thank you Imperial Tea for all those fond memories flooding back this morning😊🙏🏻-I’ve got a new tea to put in my rotation!
