2014 Sayama Shincha "Artisanal"
Origin:Saitama Prefecture, Japan
Shincha—“New Tea”—is a highlight of spring in Japan. The first tea picked in the spring, it is only lightly processed, destined to be enjoyed only during the months after the harvest. Because the tea plants have been dormant through the winter, Shin-cha captures an array of vibrant flavors. Likewise, the tea contains higher amounts of Vitamin C and the anti-oxidant catechin than regular green tea.
Saitama Prefecture, home to this Sayama Shincha, is one of Japan's northern most tea growing regions. The cooler climate results in a noticeably heartier leaf known for its bold, rich taste and has been measured to have some of the highest antioxidant content of any green tea.
