It is a shared characteristic of Gyokuro and Kabusecha that with regard to both varieties, during the final stage of the growing cycle – generally 2-3 weeks prior to harvest – the plants are shaded. In the case of Gyokuro, a net is drawn over the plantation and even the tea harvest takes place under this canopy. In the case of Kabusecha growing, the tea shrubs are directly shaded with a densely woven blanket which is only removed at the time of tea harvest. The premium Gyokuro fruit listed under the tea shop’s menu attributes its fruity, mildly sweet flavour to this long-lasting, overhead shading, while in the case of Kabusecha, the sweet flavour is paired with a mild, refreshing tartness due to the shorter but stronger shading. Alongside the valuable vitamins and amino acids it contains, this is the green tea with the highest theanine content.
