Organic Japanese Kabuse Powder (30g)
The Soshun, which means ‘early Spring’, comes from the early pre-harvest in April. This grassy, fresh and earthy pure green tea powder has a harmonious complex aroma, layered with subtle floral notes, nutty highlights and a full, long finish.
With a gentle and pleasant delicate sweetness, we recommend this to those who are embarking on drinking powdered teas for the first time.
Add about 2 bamboo spoons (chashaku) of powder into a pre-heated tea bowl (chawan). Add about 70-100ml of water at 80-85°C into the bowl. Use a bamboo whisk (chasen) to whisk the mixture in quick 'M' and 'W' movements until it is frothy.
Green tea powder is very sensitive. We recommend pressing out the air from the pack before closing with a grip, then storing the pack in an air-tight container. Store the container in the fridge or freezer. Best consumed within 6 weeks of opening.
Harvest: First Flush, Early April
Recommended for Usucha and for lovers of a particularly aromatic Koicha.
