A very grassy, astringent form of green tea made with leaves that have been allowed to mature, allowed to be grown to a large size -- the strong grassiness / bitterness / astringency is considered to be of lower quality in Japan. Higher quality can be made with a spring harvested leaves (generally leaves continue to grow after the spring harvest of higher grade leaves has been completed), while summer and autumn harvests are of lower quality.
