Love the First Harvest Sincha

I am really enjoying the First Harvest 2022 Organic Sincha. It has a wonderful color and a smooth taste with the appropriate amount of umami. The mouth feel is very smooth. I tend to enjoy it first thing in the morning but I think it would be good at any time of the day. As with all green teas, brewing conditions can really affect the flavor so make sure you adjust to your personal taste. In English/American measurements I brew about 22 ounces of tea using three teaspoons of sincha and 175º water for 75 seconds. And if you're new to Ocha & Co, everything about this tea and all of their teas is excellent! Enjoy!

Organic Shincha 2022

I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this tea, but upon opening the packet the aroma of the fresh leaves let me know I would be pleased. Upon the first brew I realized that this was the tea to begin my morning meditation.

As I began to chant
I was greeted with sweet grass
on my breath.

This will be part of most mornings.

Excellent tea!

I bought 4 bags of the 2022 Shincha, I relish opening my tea container first thing in the morning to smell the tea, and brew a pot to sip while I wake up. And then I relish the experience again in the afternoon! Thanks much for providing wonderful tea!

Excellent crop

Each year, I await the shincha and am sad if I am not quick enough to get my hands on it. This year is stellar, with low astringency and sweet flavors. There is always the essence of a sea breeze in the delicate flavors.

Green Tea from Japan

Excellent Ocha & Co. Organic Japanese Shincha First Harvest Green Tea.

Reminds me of green tea I used to have when I lived in Japan in Hiroshima area
