The first harvest (spring harvest) of Sencha each year is a special time in Uji, Japan. It marks the start of the busy tea harvesting season. The Shincha or “First Tea” is reserved each year as a limited selection of tea in celebration of Spring. We are proud to offer Shincha to you only while fresh stocks last!
A superior jasmine tea from Fujian, produced through seven successive cycles of blending in and removing jasmine flowers, it is especially suitable for drinking with close companions. The small, mossy-green leaves, flecked with white petals, hold a pervasive jasmine aroma, a distinctive lingering taste, and a mildly euphoric effect.
