Tea Review: Kabuse Sencha (Obubu)

Kabuse Sencha
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Wazuka
Product Description: Rich and intense, Kabuse Sencha has a lasting umami taste with notes of asparagus and melon. Jade-green in color it has a grassy aroma with subtle hints of clover. Shaded from the sun for two weeks and harvested in spring, Kabuse Sencha is the highest grade tea available.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a sharp, sweet, grassy green aroma.

The infusion is light green with a sharp green aroma.  The taste is sharp and rich, with grassy green and asparagus notes, moderate astringency, and a long green umami finish.

The taste of this kabusecha is consistent throughout several steepings with a rich, bright green flavor and aroma and a pleasantly umami-filled finish.  This truly wakes up the tastebuds.
