Kabusecha is a covered tea

Kabusecha (かぶせ茶, literally translates as covered tea) is generally described as being a midpoint between Sencha and Gyokuro (Kabusecha has Sencha’s refreshing flavor and also some of Gyokuro’s sweetness). For approximately one week prior to picking, Kabusecha bushes have reed screen or cloth placed over them to block out most sunlight. This enables new leaf shoots to grow without sunlight, giving the tea a darker green color, full-bodied flavor and lower astringency than Sencha. Gyokuro is another type of green tea similarly grown using covered culture, however, Gyokuro is covered for a longer period than Kabusecha - approximately 20 days prior to picking.
