The harvesting process for Kabusecha Sencha Green tea is rather unique. Like all teas, the leaves are left to grow in natural sunlight. Then 2-3 weeks before they’re harvested the tea plants are covered with huge black sheets to block around half of the sunlight, hence the name Kabusecha which literally means ‘covered tea’. The reason for this is to bring out the tea’s highly sweet taste and remove any hint of bitterness. This has led to comparisons with Japanese Gyokuro tea, both in terms of taste and the emerald green color of the leaves.
Kabusecha Sencha Green Tea is a very sweet tea, without the astringent taste of many traditional Sencha infused brews. Its colour is also a delightful shade of green, which helps it stand out from the typically cloudy colour you’ll see in most teacups. If you invite friends to share a pot of Kabusecha Green Tea they’re certain to comment on its distinctive colour, along with its taste which features hints of honey and a soothing aroma.
