Mr. Katahira's farm is in the Shizuoka province, near Suruga Bay and Mount Fuji and we are proud to say this is our second crop of kabusecha from him. Kabusecha is a type of shade-grown green tea from Japan. Japan is known for shade-grown greens, with gyokuro and sencha being the most common. The weeks long shading process, coupled with the purity of river water and fog from the mountain make this tea a good example of how growing and terroir go hand in hand to shape what we experience in the cup. Katahira's Kabusecha was harvested in 2020 and is a blend. This tea has notes of arugula, jasmine rice, and water chestnut, with a very umami and brothy mouthfeel.
