Kabusecha(被せ茶), meaning "covered tea", is a Japanese green tea, a type of sencha which is partially shaded for a brief period before harvesting, in a manner similar to how gyokuro is produced. Gyokuro is shaded for a considerably longer time-period. Kabusecha tends to have a darker, more vibrant green color than most sencha, but not quite as much as gyokuro. Kabusecha is often described as being sweeter and less bitter and astringent than most sencha so if regular sencha is too bitter for you you'll be sure to enjoy Kabusecha.

Tea Tips

Brew with a water temperature of 176°F (80°C) for 60 seconds

10 seconds (second) increase time for additional infusions.

A second steeping still contains a lot of flavor, so save your leaves and rebrew if desired.
