Description

The Kabuse is a shaded tea: several days 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. This tea comes from a rare cultivar known as Asatsuyu.

A rich and complex Grand Cru with a long-lasting fruity taste including sakura mochi and yellow fruit notes.

This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.

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.
