Ayame Kabuse | あやめかぶせ

A
AnnMarie Genovese
Refreshing vegetal umami

Very nice brewed warm, as instructed on the package, with a smooth aftertaste. It is comforting and full of vegetal flavors and much umami smoothness. A bit like fresh baby steamed greens with bean sprouts with a touch of butter cream. It is refreshing with a lovely green color. I did not enjoy it as much in cold as a cold brew tea, however. Very happy with my purchase!

About Ayame Kabuse | あやめかぶせ

Ayame is Kabuse, a Sencha that undergoes shading before harvest. This short shading period takes places 10 days before harvest and intensifies the color of the leaf while adding depth and sweetness. It also works to limit the development of any astringent or bitter qualities in the leaf. We often describe Kabuse as the link between Sencha and Gyokuro. It maintains the refreshing brightness of Sencha while also offering a richer, deeper umami associated with Gyokuro.

Recommended for: Kabuse has been one of our most beloved teas and continues, year after year to maintain a loyal following. If you like your Sencha deep and rich with plenty of unctuous mouthfeel, then this is the one for you. We also love making Ayame Kabuse iced tea employing the Mizudashi method. It brews up with an unbelievable color and sweetness that is unparalleled.
