Kabusencha (被せ茶), meaning "covered tea", is a Japanese green sencha partially shaded for a brief period before harvesting, in a manner similar to how gyokuro is produced. Gyokuro is shaded for a longer time-period. Kabusencha tends to have a darker, more vibrant green color than most senchas, but not quite as much as gyokuro. Kabusencha is often described as being sweeter and less bitter and astringent than most sencha so if regular sencha is too bitter for you may enjoy kabusencha!
