This kabusecha is 100% single-origin and quite rare as it represents less than 5% of the total production of green tea in Japan.

Kabusecha means "covered tea" as the leaves are shielded from the sun for ~2 weeks prior to harvest to create a sweet umami taste. Once harvested, the leaves are steamed and kneaded to form a thin, needle-like tea.

Tasting notes: Tropical fruit, light floral, and sea salt

Feature Flora teas are produced by a 4th-gen, women-owned tea farm in Kyoto. The Hori family experiments with rare cultivars and creates unique single-origin teas to reignite appreciation for the beauty and complexity of high-quality Japanese tea.
