Hashiri Shincha ($24.75)

JAPANESE GREEN TEA: Hashiri Sencha
Description:
Hashiri means the "first (harvest or catch) of the season" and our Hashiri Shincha is just that. It is the first of the first flush teas. It is made from the very young leaves and buds of the tea plant. We are very glad to once again to be offering Hashiri Shincha. Not only do we get to supply you with a great tea, but we also have the opportunity to work with a tea grower who is essentially an artist in the tea field.
  • Origin: Uchimaki, Shizuoka
  • Harvest: First Flush 2015
  • Species: Yabukita
hashiri shincha Every year Den's parent company, Shirakata-Denshiro Shoten, strikes a special contract with the Moriuchi tea farm to purchase their very young shincha leaves and use it as the only tea in our Hashiri Shincha. The Moriuchi tea farm is owned and operated by Mr. Yoshio Moriuchi who has a brilliant history in tea farming. He has won Gold and Silver medals in the past several years at the World Green Tea Contest, the O-Cha Frontier Contest, and the Shizuoka Tea Auction. His passion for tea and his spirit of ingenuity are still growing. He uses an original natural fertilizer that he blends himself. He is very careful at timing the harvest to bring out the best flavor of the tea leaf. His first flush tea is very delicate and the top buds and tea leaves are carefully picked by hand.

yoshio After the leaves are picked, Mr. Moriuchi makes Aracha (rough tea) with the young leaves. The Aracha is brought to the Shirakata-Denshiro Shoten's factory, where it is processed as little as possible. To maintain its field freshness especially for this Hashiri Shincha, there is no blending and only a light roasting. Consequently it is somewhat delicate and will be available for a very limited time.
