This Grand Cru comes from the city of Kobayashi, located in the Miyazaki region in Japan. Kabuse tea is a shaded tea: several days before harvesting, the tea plants are covered over. Thus deprived of light, theanine build-up occurs in the leaves and gives the tea a rich and complex range of fragrances.
A spring green tea with an umami flavour, which reveals complex vegetal, floral and buttery notes which are unveiled against a velvety texture.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
