Quick Overview

Shizuoka Shincha

Origin:Kagoshima 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.

Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan's main tea growing region, is located in the vicinity of Mt. Fuji. Shizuoka's mild, maritime climate lends a richer taste. Bold yet balanced with an exceptional lingering sweetness, this is an outstanding first harvest that will not disappoint.
