Kabuse (literally "covered") teas represent a growing technique where the tea plants are shaded for a period prior to harvest. This includes Gyokuro, but Gyokuro is shaded longer (3-4 weeks,) and more completely than a Kabuse Sencha, which might be shaded for a week or two at most, allowing it to occupy a space between Sencha and Gyokuro. This Okumidori Kabuse Sencha infuses to a golden-green hue with a faint aroma of marine air. Soft and Medium-bodied, it has a good balance of light amami (sweetness) and shibumi (astringency). The astringency level starts out low and expands in later infusions with some grassier notes.

Kirishima is located in the center of Kagoshima Prefecture between Kinko Bay to the south and the Kirishima Mountains to the north bordering Miyazaki Prefecture. Organic tea production in the area has increased in recent years.
