Add to Cart
This Kabusecha is grown in one of the highest areas of Japan, in Shizuoka Prefecture. The tea's rich sweetness is created by shading the tea plant with a dark cloth 20 days before harvest. Like Gyokuro, the tea gains more umami flavor and sweetness by cutting off the plant's sunlight. The tea's mountain aroma is preserved by only lightly steaming the tea in production. The producer, Mori-san, says, "I grew this tea like it was my own child."

Kabusecha Japanese Green Tea from Narao, Shizuoka is produced in Shizuoka prefecture.
Mori-san produces small batches of artisanal tea on the mountainous slopes of Narao, Shizuoka. At 600 meters, farming is tricky and the weather is less than optimal. Winter snowfall makes for harsh living and difficult tea production as the tea trees are extremely sensitive to the cold. However, it is because of this cold weather that Mori-san is able to make such good tea. The low temperature allows the tea trees to absorb and retain high levels of nutrients from the ground before sprouting which results in deeper flavors. Mori-san also uses the technique of shading the tea trees with a dark cloth before harvest to increase the levels of umami and sweetness. His mountain teas have received multiple awards and are produced with much care.
