shincha 2018 "Shin" means new, and "Cha" means tea. Shincha, often called the first flush tea, is made from the tea picked during the first harvest in the spring. The first harvest of the year, usually from April to May, produces the highest quality tea in Japan.

Hashiri Shincha is sold out. If you purchased it THANK YOU and we hope you enjoyed this seasonal new tea.

We still have some stock of Kunpu and Houryoku available. It will be another 12 months before they are available again, so don't miss this wonderful taste of special seasonal teas.
