Harvested at an auspicious time—88 days after February 3rd, the first day of spring on the the traditional Japanese calendar—this green tea from Fukuoka is bursting with umami. The aroma is savory, the flavor sweet and deep with a mouth-coating texture.
Shincha, or new tea, refers to the first harvest of sencha for the season. These leaves have been carefully rolled and steamed between a chumushi and fukamushi style, resulting in the classic pine-needle shape and rich emerald color.
Steep with water below boiling to maintain this tea’s delicate bittersweet balance.
Tasting Notes: sweet, deep, grassy
Approximately three servings
This is one of the best sencha teas I have tasted. Very high quality and something I have ordered more than once.
