Kabuse tea is a shaded tea: several days before harvesting, the tea plants are covered over. Thus deprived of light, the flavour builds up in the leaves, resulting in highly softteas.
This Kabuse tea renowned for its freshness and its vegetal, seafood, fruity and floral notes.
This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
