Product specificity 商品説明

Shincha (新茶), 'new tea', represents the first month's harvest of Japanese green tea of the year.

The first picked tea of the year accumulates plenty of nutrients during the winter and reaches full maturity in spring. Tea at this time of year has a rich, refreshing smell and is full of umami.

This one in particular is made from tea leaves grown in southern Japan. Enjoy this sweet smell full of sunshine and rich in flavor.

Japan's Three Major Tea Producing Regions

Shizuoka 静岡

With more than 40% of Japan's tea production, Shizuoka is the leading tea-producing region. The cities Kikugawa and Kakegawa are also known as the birthplace of deep steamed tea method called Kamairi.

Kagoshima 鹿児島

It is the second largest tea producing region after Shizuoka. The city of Chiran is particularly popular there because you can see Mount Kaimon from the tea plantations. 

Kyoto 京都

For 800 years, the traditions and crafts related to tea harvesting have been passed down from generation to generation and are still very present.
