From Nakamori Seicha

Kabusecha is a shaded Japanese green tea. The tea was made from Yabukita cultivar and harvested in spring. Collaborating with the Mie Tea Research Institute, Nakamori-san used double-layer shading, that makes the tea leaves even greener and the taste more umami.

For brewing Nakamori-san recommends using 6g of tea with 120ml of water cooled down to 70°C and steeping for 1min. The result is a dense liquor with a lot of umami.

Silky mouthfeel.

The second infusion brought murky liquor and astringency.

TTB sample on a rainy (yet warm and humid!) afternoon. This brews up a very lovely pale neon green—almost chartreuse. The Global Japanese Tea Association website describes it as “a dense liquor with lots of umami” but I’m not really getting either of those descriptors. I have such a hard time describing delicate green tea… it’s maybe a little grassy, maybe a little vegetal, but to me it just tastes like a fresh, clean green tea! I don’t know what else to say! I get no particular notes in the taste or aroma. I like it well enough. It’s tasty. The end. XD

Flavors: Grassy, Vegetal
