What is Kabusécha

Kabusécha essentially refers to half-shaded teas, whereby best suited sections of the tea garden and tea bushes are covered with special nets called Kabusé, allowing only 50% of sunlight to reach the plants. Shading of tea plants comes from a long tradition of unique ancestral tea manufacturing practices and know-how.

Growing in half shade closely resembles the natural growing conditions of wild tea plants. Shaded tea develops more active substances and a distinctive fresh aromatic scent, and complex flavour profile.
