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 from 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 all the nutrients that are stored in the plant over the winter months are released into the first leaves. Much sweeter and floral than regular Sencha, full of aroma and grassiness.
