From Japanese Green Tea Co.

Nozomi is Kabuse-cha which translates as, “Covered Green Tea” in English. Very few farms are capable of using this methodology as the green tea is covered by a special net to block sunlight for a few days before a new sprout comes out.

This is my favorite green tea and I haven’t reviewed it?! Shame on me. This is a truly fantastic Japanese Green Tea. From the moment you open the bag to the lingering flavors on your palate everything is so good. The leaf is a vibrant green. Lush. Jade. Elegant deep jade. Mostly small leaf but also some long needle like leaf. And the dry aroma is luscious. Mango, passion fruit, hints of grass and vegetal notes. Even an interesting honey note I just pick up. A very sweet honey not savory like Manuka. The wet leaf is very mushy. Smells of asparagus and slight cream. AND OH THE MOUTH FEEL. It’s so silky. Wow. Just a tad bit of astringency. The flavors are newly grassy but mixed with a perfect amount of umami and some vegetal notes. I love this tea. Love, love, love.

After finishing my sample from @skysamurai, I was still thinking about this tea for a few weeks after so I finally decided to get it. It’s honestly really refreshing, sweet and nice in the summer even as a hot tea. I think it is the first kabusecha I have had before, so i feel pretty lucky to enjoy it so much. It’s also such a brillant bright green liquor. It kind of makes me chuckle how the hue reminds of the color of cartoon green acid or cartoon radioactive waste.

Feeling a little unwell today and its helping me relax in the right way- listening to ghibli sound tracks and working at relaxing pace (at home).

There’s a reason this tea has won so many awards in its home country. It has a nice umami, marine, rich flavor like many high quality Japanese fukamushichas, but also has some nice undertones of freeze dried strawberries that really ties the tea together!

A perfectly nice green tea. Mostly tastes of toasted hay, with some bright vegetal notes. There’s a slight nuttiness as well.

Flavors: Green, Hot Hay, Nutty, Vegetal
