Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

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.
