The first harvest (spring harvest) of organic Sencha each year is a special time in Uji, Japan. It marks the start of the busy tea harvesting season. In each cup you will taste youthful excitement and early brightness. The Shincha or “First Tea” is reserved each year as a limited selection of tea in celebration of Spring. We are proud to offer organic Shincha to you only while fresh stocks last!
This tea is sold in a 50g packet for $20.00.
[ka-boo-say-cha] Shaded Sencha
This organic, Sencha-style green tea is shade-grown for fewer than 20 days. Shade growing increases the amount of protein and chlorophyll in the leaf. Kabusecha combines green freshness of Sencha with the creamy, brothy, and pungent richness of Gyokuro. The balance of flavors and pleasant umami is sure to please both Sencha and Gyokuro enthusiasts. A perfect pairing for laughter with good friends.
