Kabusecha Orihime organic green tea 50g

The organic Kabusecha Orhime green tea is in the category of the shaded teas because its plantantions were covered before the harvest. this practice allow to obtain sweet flavors and a rich umami feature in the cup.




Kabusecha is a Japanese green tea which is related to a category of tea which undergo a special production process.The plantation of these tea are "obscured" some days before the harvest. This practice it made thanks to big perforated sheets which filter the sunlight causing a high production of chlorophyll in the tea leaves. This practice of covering takes about ten days depending on the producer and the location.

Because of the high content of chlorophyll we could have more complex flavors and a structured and rich body which persist in the mouth. During the testing, in fact, we can feel a structured vegetal flavor similar to the taste of green legumes and then a sweetness of a summer pasty fruit. After all these flavors It's also possible to detect some sea air touch due to the fact that the plantations where this tea come from are located on a hill (at 300 meters on the sea level) near to the Japanese coasts where winds full of saltiness usually blow.

Place of origin

Kagoshima, Japan.


The plantations of this tea are partially obscured about 10 days before the harvest and then it follows the classic Japanese production phase. The leaves after the picking phase pass through a brief withering phase and then they are steamed at a very high temperature for 15/20 seconds. This practice provides the "killing of the green" which stands for the deactivation of the enzymes responsible of the oxidation process. The leaves are now rolled for released all their flavors and then they are dried with hot air to be ready to infuse.

Ingredients: organic green tea.


Put 4 grams of leaves (about two teaspoon) in the Japanese teapot called kyusu or if you don't have one you could use another teapot preferably with a wide flat bottom.

Pour 100 ml of water at 60°C temperature on the leaves and after 30 seconds start pouring the tea into the cups. For a better tasting experience we recommend to do two more infusions of the leaves with the same values of temperature and quantity but using different infusion time. We suggest 40 seconds for the second infusion and 50 seconds for the third.

The tea could be filtered if you want to avoid some little piece of the leaves during the tasting time and also the steeping time we recommend here could be modify on your personal preferences.

Because we are talking about a Japanese green tea we invite you to cold brew your leaves before using the hot water on their. For this particular kind of infusion you could use the same amount of leaves, the same amount of water at room or cold temperature and a steeping time of 10 minutes.
