Kabusecha literally means "shaded tea" and generally refers to a sencha that has been shaded for 10-14 days (though the actual time can be varied). 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.
