Shogyokuen Tea Factory's Tsuki no Hikari, is a kabusecha, but as sweet as many gyokuro at major tea brands. In the past, Kabusecha was called “hot water Gyokuro” - meant for steeping at hotter temperatures similar to sencha but still providing a rich umami flavor.

Steeping notes

Tea: 5 grams, Time: 2 minutes, Water: 60C/140F degrees, 100 ml (or about 1/2 cup).

This formula is meant to extract an umami rich tea. Subsequent steeps may be enjoyed as a sencha, steeping a full cup for 30 seconds at 70C/158F degrees.
