THIS TEA IS SOLD OUT AND WON'T BE AVAILABLE UNTIL NEXT YEAR
Shincha, literally "New Tea", is one of the most praised Japanese teas. Shincha is the very first Sencha harvest of the year, celebrated for its sweet, fresh flavor and smooth umami character. Unlike many other teas that are usually available throughout the year, Shincha doesn't go to storage – it is meant for immediate sale, and therefore is available for a limited time only.
The harvest of Shincha starts in mid-April, when young green tea leaves, woken up from the wintertime dormancy, are full of nutrients and vibrant flavors. The fresh tea leaves of Shincha contain a high amount of amino acid L-theanine, vitamin C, and catechin antioxidants. They also possess a strong fragrance and fresh taste.
Our Shincha comes from the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka prefecture. Kakegawa is part of the designated Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Site (GIAHS) – farmlands that preserve sustainable farming practices and create a symbiosis between human agriculture and the local flora and fauna.
Now is your chance to obtain this outstanding Japanese Green Tea. Once sold out, it won't be available until the next year.
