Gyokuro is overflowing with umami. You just have to steep it at a lower temperature like 140 to 160 for 2 minutes and use more leaves. Some Darjeeling first flushes also have lots of umami.

Oh yeah white teas like Bai Mudan also have umami.

Adagio’s Artichoke green was definitely more savory when 1.5tsp of leaves are steeped in 2oz of 160 degree water for 1.5min.
