Tasting Notes: Baked Grass / Nori / Cream

Tea Origin: Fukuoka, Japan

Packaging: 100g, Oxygen Free Bag

Brewing. 1st Steep: 6g of leaf | 160g of water @ 165°F | Steep for 1 minute. 2nd Steep: 175°F | Steep for 30 seconds

Storage: Keep the tea in the refrigerator. After opening, place the tin in a ziploc bag before returning to the fridge - this will protect the tea from absorbing any aromas from your refrigerator.

Description: 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.
