From the first harvest in Uji. Kabusecha is grown in the shade for 14~20 days before harvest under 45% shade, giving it characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. A sweeter, less grassy and more vegital, less astringent taste than regular sencha, you can definitely taste vegitive hint's of gyokuro. It is easy to brew, not overly astringent, medium steamed, has a lovely green color, and is reasonably priced making it an all around versitle winner of a green tea. Although it has hints of gyokuro, be sure to brew it as you would for sencha, not gyokuro.
