Description:
Kabusecha, just like Gyokuro, are shaded before the harvest, but slightly differently, depending on the type of Kabusecha produced. This gives the tea a certain tartness, that is more subtle than the one found in Sencha. The present tea is made from the subvariety Saemidori that has a pleasant sweetness to it.
Character:
A gentle tea, whose pleasant slightly grassy notes are underscored by a subtle tartness and a fine taste of umami.

Available
Description:
An excellent Gyokuro from the region of Hoshino, with a very full umami taste (typical for the teas from Kyushu), at the same time very balanced, which probably results from the variety that has been used, i.e. Yabukita. Yabukita is usually used to make Sencha, but when well made, as it is the case here, a beautiful Gyokuro can be the result.
Character:
Highly concentrated, juicy, mellow, full, sweet, buttery, slightly spicy. A tea that melts in the mouth like a shortbread right from the oven.

Description:
Gyokuro Temomicha

An excellent hand-rolled Gyokuro. The leaves come from Fugenji, near Kyoto and have been shaded for 23 days. Yet the processing took place in Saitama, by Hiruma-san, a well-known expert for hand-rolled teas. With his experience and craftsmanship, he produces this extraordinary Gyokuro; and this despite the fact that the tea has been made from Yabukita, a plant that is usually used for Sencha.

Temomicha - a hand-rolled tea. This is rare in Japan, as the tea production is mostly mechanised. After steaming, the tea is produced on a type of heated table. This procedure can last for up to seven hours and requires great attention and care. Thus are produced very small quantities of tea of outstanding quality.
Character:
A full tea with a pleasant Umami taste that is in a delicate balance with a fine and yet intense spiciness.
