A uji midori cultivar kabusecha from Azuma Tea Garden in Wazuka, Kyoto Prefecture. This tea was shaded for 2 weeks which allowed the tea leaves to grow slowly and deeply in color. The tea has a rich umami flavor that rivals that of gyokuro. 

The uji midori cultivar was selected in 1985 from a seed of zairai (native) tea bushes from Uji. It is a cultivar that was developed to suit the terroir of Kyoto Prefecture. 
Kabusecha literally means "shaded tea" and generally refers to a sencha that has been shaded for 10-14 days (though the actual time will vary). It does not have as strong of an umami flavor as a gyokuro (a shaded sencha that has been shaded for much longer for a much stronger umami flavor). The result is a very nice balance of sweet and savory with bitterness and grassiness.
