Kabusecha


Kabusecha or Kabuse Sencha stands for shaded Sencha. For this green tea, the tea plants are shaded with special nets before harvesting. The nets allow only about half of the light to pass through, which means that the plants produce a high content of chlorophyll and other active substances and at the same time few bitter substances. Their characteristic "shade aroma" is called "ooika".

Fukamushicha


The teas in this set have all been intensively steamed (fukamushi-cha, 100 - 120 seconds steaming time). The gentle steaming opens the leaf pores and the extracts pass from the tea leaf more easily and quickly into the water. This can be recognised by the deep green colour of the tea in the cup and the yield of the tea - with top qualities like these, 4 infusions are possible!

Preparation


We recommend an infusion temperature of 60-65°C for these teas. Let the first infusion steep for about 1 minute, for later infusions just steep briefly and pour out after a few seconds. For the last infusion, the infusion time can be extended a little more to get all the goodness out of the tea.
Intensely steamed early pluckings are also particularly suitable for cold infusions (Mizudashi). Even with cold water, you get an intense and refreshing tea after just a few minutes. Since the bitter substances do not dissolve as strongly in cold water, the sweetish aromas of Kabusecha come into their own. For a cold-brew steep the tea leaves in cold water for at least 5 Minutes.
Incidentally, the early pluckings also have a particularly high theanine content, which is noticeable in the sweet taste and comes out best at a low infusion temperature!

Storage


In order to preserve the valuable aromas and ingredients of the tea in the best possible way, we ask you to close the bag tightly and store it in a cool, dark place in the fridge or freezer.

Wunderbarer Schritt in die Feinschmeckerwelt der grünen Tees

Für jene, die gern grünen Tee trinken, ihre geschmacklichen Vorlieben aber noch nicht recht am Aromarad verorten können, sei dieses Set empfohlen. Hierüber wird man wissen, ob der eigene Geschmackssinn bereits die einzelnen Nuancen herausschmecken kann oder sich der Aufschlag für die Premiumsorten einfach noch nicht lohnt. Mit der Bandbreite von eher leicht zu vollmundig ist die Bandbreite der am einfachsten wahrnehmbaren Aspekte innerhalb der Senchas gut abgedeckt und der Portionengröße (drei Portionen je Sorte mit je drei Aufgüssen) ist Raum für ein wenig experimentieren gegeben, während man nicht ewig an eine Sorte gebunden ist, die in der Reihe der hier durchgehend hochwertigen Tees vielleicht dann doch nur am zweitliebsten genossen wird. Wirkliche exotische Überraschungen außerhalb eines für reguläre Teetrinker erwarteten Spektrums wird man hiermit nicht erleben, was durchaus nichts schlechtes ist, gerade wenn man kein jahrelang passionierter Geschmackswanderschmecker auf der ewigen Jagd nach der neusten aufregend anderen Sorte ist.

Besonderes Geschmackserlebnis mit Eventfaktor

Ohne das Set hätte ich mich vermutlich nie an die ganzen Sorten rangetraut und freue mich sehr, dass das so ermöglicht wurde, da es eine wunderbare Reise in neue Geschmackswelten war! Ich kann nur empfehlen, das Tasting in Gemeinschaft zu zelebrieren (zumindest per Videocall!), es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht, auch gerade durch das begleitende Büchlein.

The large stainless steel strainer allows for the leaves to unfold and release their full aroma wonderfully. The teapot is made by Hario in Japan and is dishwasher-proof. Filling capacity The filling capacities of the teaware are always measured up to the edge - the actual quantity in daily use is slightly smaller. This teapot is for 1-6 persons.

Cold brewer "ooika"
Item No. 42200 The Ooika- Cold brewer for the preparation of drip tea can be used with hot OR cold water. However, it is ideal especially for cold brew green tea highlighting the rich yet sweet green fragrance of high quality Kabusecha, known amongst tea-connoisseurs as Ooika. The Cold brewer consists of two glass vessels which are connected with a rubber base with a small opening, which lets the water drip into the stainless steel strainer underneath and then into the lower vessel. To prepare your cold drip Green Tea measure 2-3 teaspoons of tea into the sieve (make sure the tea covers the bottom of the strainer evenly) and fill the upper vessel with 600 to 900ml of water. You can also use ice cubes to make a Kouridashi-brew, either letting them melt slowly to drip over the tea or just add them to your tea once its ready. The preparation takes between 25 and 45 minutes. You can adjust the speed by pushing the little knob deeper into the rubber base to slow the water flow or pulling it back out to speed it up. Best suited for this type of preparation is deep steamed (fukamushi) Kabusecha from an early picking, as these will best release the aroma and all the valuable ingredients of the tea but also the least astringency. Our Tip: Serve the cold drip tea in wine-glasses to surprise your dinner guests with a tasty refreshing alternative to alcohol!
