Green tea from Kagoshima, South Japan
Made mostly from high quality stems and leaves left after processing of the first flush. In Japan, it is called "Shiraore", its taste is slightly sweet, its liquor is of grass-green colour and fresh green aroma. As it contains less caffeine, Kukicha is suitable for evening drinking.
Shading of original tea plants has a long tradition. In the Kagoshima region in southern Japan (with the still active Sakurajima volcano), tea plants in the most suitable estates are covered with special nets (kabuse). Shading only lets 50 % of sunlight through. Growing in halfshade closely resembles the conditions of wild tea plants. Shaded tea develops more active substances and distinctive highly aromatic scent.

Preparation: Allow 3 teaspoons (15 g) of tea for 1l of boiled water, cooled down to 70°C, steep for 40 seconds. For second infusion, cool the water down to 70°C, steep for only 10 seconds. You can prepare third and further infusions in a similar way.
