Ocha & Co. Organic Japanese Shincha First Harvest Green Tea - 80g

ORGANIC SHINCHA FIRST FLUSH GREEN TEA 

Shincha (New Tea 新茶) is the tea taken from the very first pickings from the Sencha harvest. The season begins in April in the more southern tea growing regions and later in May, further north. Shincha from our organic plantation will be available late April to early May depending on the weather conditions. Our customers can pre-order here so we can reserve stock from the limited amount available.

Because the leaves are the first picked al the nutrients stored over the winter months and released into the first leaves. Much sweeter than regular Sencha, full of aroma and grassiness.

Shincha

This tea is very, very good. The quality of the tea is excellent. It has a lighter taste than the organic sencha, but it is very smooth. I’m glad that I ordered it!

I am a newcomer to Japanese tea but I am hooked now with my recent order of first harvest Shincha! Amazing taste, light, flavorful, never harsh or bitter. Ocha & Co is an excellent business to work with. They ship quick and I received my package quickly and well packed for the international journey. Thank you so much!
