This is a very high quality matcha for cooking. It can be added to desserts, such as cakes or cookies, or milkshakes, or it can even be added to savoury dishes such as rice or seafood. But the quality is such that you can also use it as ceremonial matcha for beginners by whisking it with a chasen and serving it in a chawan. It will be slightly more bitter than a top-notch matcha, but it can still be throughly enjoyed.

Excellent organic green tea cultivated in partial shade in the Kagoshima Mountains, using tea leaves of the Okumidori cultivar that were shaded for the last 14 days prior to harvest. Kabuse, or “covered” tea, is a Japanese green tea that is grown under a shield of straw or cotton, similar to gyokuro tea. The shading process inhibits photosynthesis, meaning the tea plant must survive on its own store of nutrients. This changes the chemical composition of the leaves, reducing catechin (responsible for bitterness) and extracting L-Theanine, improving its sweet flavor and aromatic properties. The main difference between gyokuro and kabuse is the type of shield and its duration. Kabuse tea is partially shaded for 3-14 days and gyokuro is completely shaded for 20-30 days.
