About Kabusecha

Kabusecha(被せ茶), meaning "covered tea", is a Japanese green tea, a type of sencha which is partially shaded for a brief period before harvesting, in a manner similar to how gyokuro is produced. Gyokuro is shaded for a considerably longer time-period.

Kabusecha is often described as being sweeter and less bitter and astringent than most sencha.
