Fujihara Tea Growers – Kabusecha


Made with 22 days of shade-grown leaves.  The shading helps leaves to preserve umami and caffeine.  In the finishing process, the leaves are dried carefully instead of firing to take out the moisture.  Enjoy the fresh taste of young shoots.

Brewing step:
1. Use soft water
2. Boil water for 5 min. to take out air and chlorine

5. Pour the adjusted temperature water into the teapot (little more than half a cup of water for 1 person) and put a lid on the teapot
6. Wait 1 – 1.5 min.
