Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

Kabusecha tea is grown beneath shading, reducing about 85% of the sunlight. This allows the leaves to mature without obtaining bitterness like gyokuro. However, the period of shading is usually shorter, 10-14 days, allowing for a slightly more astringency than gyokuro and producing a tea with a refined balance.

NOTE: Please note that this product was previously called “Standard Gyokuro”, our translation of the Japanese term nettogyokuro 熱湯玉露 which means "hot water gyokuro". The product is now called a “Kabusecha” because it is now defined by the shading period (about 2 weeks) rather than the flavor.
