Another one of the green teas that I bought during a random craving. This one is really nice! None of that weird latex flavor I get in so many green teas. This is fresh, vibrant, and spinachy.
Organic Kabuse Sencha has a rich and sweet dry leaf aroma. The liquor is lively and bold, grassy and floral with a light astringency. The delicious aftertaste lingers revealing further umami and floral notes. Grown without pesticides and shaded from the sun for two weeks, this is a wonderful high grade tea.
This tea has JAS, EU and USDA organic certifications.
Tea Cultivar: Mixed
Processing: Lightly Steamed, Rolled, Dried
It started with a single cup of tea. As the legend goes, our president Akihiro Kita, or Akky-san, visited Wazuka, Kyoto one fateful day. At the time, Akky-san was still a college student in search for life's calling. After trying the region's famous Ujicha (literally meaning tea from the Uji district), he immediately fell in love and his passion for green tea was born. He had finally found what he was looking for in that one simple cup of tea. After fifteen years of learning to master the art of growing tea from tea farmers in Wazuka, Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms was born and as they say, the rest is history. So what's an Obubu? Obubu is the Kyoto slang for tea. Here in the international department we call ourselves Obubu Tea. That's "Tea Tea" for the bilinguals. We love tea so much, we just had to have it twice in our name. Now Obubu means more than just tea to us. It means, family, friends, passion and the place we call home. More than just tea. Though the roots of Obubu stem from tea, it has become more than that over the years. Obubu is an agricultural social venture, operating with three (1) bring quality Japanese tea to the world (2) contribute to the local and global community through tea (3) revitalize interest in tea and agriculture through education.
