Varietals. 

Japanese tea, like the grape, has an incredible amount of varietals. To highlight the depth and spur your curiosity, here is an incomplete list of sencha varietals:

Yabukita

Saemidori

Okumidori

Asatsuyu

yutakamidori

sayamamidori

kanayamidori

benifuki

asanoka

And the great part is each has its own character. When the varieties are blended, the depth is transformed: heightened, or often, muted.
