The word Kabuse means 'wrapped' in Japanese and it is common sight to see Kabuse or wrapped tea bushes throughout Japan. Wrapping the tea bush allows a slower growing leaf with deeper color concentration, less astringency and in turn providing a "umami," or savory flavor. The bushes are typically wrapped for 4-5 days just before harvest. The deeper green tea leaves (in the picture) is the outcome of the known color concentration.
