Kabusé 2013

5 stars 5.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

I have stuck my nose into the bag and inhaled aroma of tea. It smelled sweet after strawberry jam.

The leaves are dark green and beautifully shiny.

Kabusé is substantially the same as Sencha. The only difference is that the tea bushes are 10 days before harvest covered with mats. This will reduce the amount of sunlight falling on leaves and tea is therefore forced to increase the amount of chlorophyll to allow photosynthesis even with less sunlight. The taste is then finer and less bitter compared to Sencha .

It's a pleasant tea. At first infusion I am using very cold water about 45°C. I am steeping for about 1 minute. Brew is very light in color with a fine haze. The taste is sweet, like cream with no signs of bitterness, only gently astringent grassy taste.

The second infusion - again cold water and steeping for 10s only. Still no bitterness, astringency is little stronger. Sweet and salty taste. The grassy taste, where I am finding traces of strawberry jam. You can observe very mild bitterness at the end in your mouth.

Just goodness.

Quotes - Green tea


„Kabusecha (冠茶, covered tea) - Kabusecha is made from the leaves grown in the shade prior to harvest, although not for as long as Gyokuro. It has a more delicate flavor than Sencha. It is sometimes marketed as Gyokuro.“

Quotes

„A book written in the Tang Dynasty of China is considered one of the most important in the history of green tea. The book was written by Lu Yu and is called the "Tea Classic" or "Cha Jing". It was written between 600 and 900 AD and spoke about exactly how and where one could enjoy a fine cup of green tea.“
