Where To Buy: American Tea Room
Our Kabuki green tea is as dramatic and colorful as its namesake. Small bright kabuse leaves, blossomy cherry tree flowers and vibrant violet blooms come together for a bold, flowery bouquet with a scent of cherry simple syrup. The brew is bright, clear, electric lime. It has a flowery aroma with a light, vegetal undertone. The flavor is smooth and sweet – the taste of cherry blossoms is heightened with flavors of violet and fresh-cut flower stems.
Harvested in Kyoto April 2 – 4 and air shipped to insure optimal freshness.
I really like the selection that American Tea Room offers! This is the first time I have tried Kabuki tho. I must admit that I have been intrigued by Cherry Blossom-Type Flavored Teas Lately. So I am very happy to try this one! Here is what I found…
The dry blend smells like Cherry Candy and post infusion it smells like cherry blossoms and green tea. This is a very fun and fruity yet pleasant aroma!
It’s highly flavored – on the tongue – and pretty good hot. Once it turns cold I find it a bit bitter….not in a bad way – just noticed a flavor change when it cools, that’s all. I don’t mind it cold but prefer this hot, actually.
All-in-All this is a fairly good flavored green and I’m happy to add it to my personal stash!
