Kabuse-cha translates as "covered green tea" in English. The green tea is covered by a special net to block sunlight for a few days before new sprout grow. By purposely blocking sunlight for timed few days before new sprout comes out, the tea creates a very unique aroma and taste.
Fukamushi translates to "deeper steam" in Japanese. This approach only works well for thicker tea leaves. In order to take advantage of richer nutrients contained in thicker tea leaves, they are steamed for three to four times longer than regular sencha green tea
Wa black tea, which is popular worldwide, is product of higher fermentation from original tea plant. We do not go into much here as there is a lot more detail about the different types of black tea throughout the world. In Japan, this type is not called black; rather it is called red tea (kou-cha 紅茶).
Matcha is a powder made of tea leaves which have been grown in the shades and sheltered from direct sunlight. As a result, these tea plants grow much slower, which means that they produce higher chlorophyll levels in their leaves. This is the reason why matcha leaves usually have an intense shade of green.
