Description

The Kabuse is a shaded tea: several weeks before the harvest, the tea plants are covered over. This light deprivation causes theanine to build up in the leaves, and lead to an exceedingly soft tea.

It is produced by Mr Sakamoto from the Yabukita cultivar. This Kabuse comes from the Shizuoka region, and is harvested at 350 metres above sea level in Haruno.

A Kabuse tea characterised by a dense texture, against which vivacious vegetal and iodised notes develop, with a powerful umami taste.

The perfect Grand Cru for those seeking to discover shade-grown teas.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

"Kabuse" is a shade-grown tea. Each shrub is covered over several days before harvesting takes place, in order to deprive it of light. The result is this highly soft texture, that I really like.

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.
