We are excited to announce that our Hashiri Shincha, "the first of the first flush teas", has arrived. As expected, 2016 Hashiri Shincha is a high quality tea and we can't wait for you to taste this super fresh Shincha.
We have started shipping pre-orders in the order they were received. Due to the number of orders it will take us a few extra days to fill them but we will have them delivered ASAP.
Again this year we are proud to announce that our Hashiri Shincha was grown exclusively on the Moriuchi tea farm where it was picked by hand. Tea grown at this farm has received many awards and the farm has been selected as a tea supplier for the Emperor's palace.

Shincha Kunpu and Shincha Houryoku are both Eighty-Eighth (88th) Night Shinchas. Kunpu comes from the Honyama region of Shizuoka. It is lightly steamed with a woodsy aroma and a natural sweetness similar to fresh green vegetables. Houryoku comes from the Makinohara region of Shizuoka. It is a Fukamushi Sencha in that it was steamed longer than Shincha Kunpu. It produces a thick emerald liquid full of herbaceous flavor.
Eighty-Eighth Night Shincha refers to Shincha picked on the 88th day after the first day of spring in the traditional Japanese calendar. This is usually around May 2nd. The Eighty-Eighth Night - "Hachijuhachiya" in Japanese - is a special day in Japanese agriculture since it is the time all the plants and vegetables begin to sprout.
Kunpu means "Aromatic Wind", and Houryoku means "Sprouting Green". Both names are characteristic of the wonderful spring season and, we believe these names best fit each Shincha. Experience the genuine freshness of these Japanese green teas!
