Kabuse tea is a shade-grown tea: it is covered over for several weeks before it is harvested, which softens the tea's tannins and gives it its umami taste.

Kabuse means "to cover over", which refers to the canvas material which cover the tea plants several weeks before they are harvested. The lack of light stimulates the development of an umami taste, and a particularly smooth texture.

It is ideal for discovering the traditional Japanese preparation technique (kyusu or shiboridashi).
