Description

A tea comprising stems (kukicha) from Kabusecha plants grown in the Kyoto region, known for its high quality teas. Roasted like a Bancha Hojicha, its texture is smooth with no trace of astringency. This is a lovely rich tea (cooked fruit) with easy, typical cereal and roasted notes, ideal for the evening.

In Japan, there are shade-grown teas and light-grown teas. The shade-grown teas, called Kabusecha, are deprived of light for three weeks before plucking. This inhibits photosynthesis in the leaves, forcing the tea plant to draw on its existing store of nutrients, altering the chemical composition of the leaf as well as its aromatic qualities.
In terms of taste, the resulting tea is smoother and more delicate, developing less bitterness. The best know kabusecha tea is the Gyokuro.
